Nominations launch for IChemE 2020 medals including new Clean Energy award
2 Sep 2019
The Institution of Chemical Engineers has added a Clean Energy category to its annual array of medals.
It is one of two new categories – the second being the Sharma Medal whose £1,000 prize money is being funded by Dr Rama Rao, founder of India’s Avra Ltd and Professor Jyeshtharaj Joshi, former director of the country’s Institute of Chemical Technology.
The additions were announced for the launch of the 2020 medals nominations process. IChemE’s medals and prizes committee awards prizes to individuals and groups to provide peer recognition of excellence in research, teaching, services to the profession, and outstanding contributions to the institution.
Nominations close on 31 October 2019, with winners presented with their medals at various events throughout the year.
IChemE vice president (technical), and chair of the medals & prizes committee, Jarka Glassey said:
“IChemE’s annual medals and prizes programme recognises and celebrates chemical engineers’ achievements in advancing the profession and inspiring future generations.
"I encourage professionals in both industry and academia around the world, whether or not they are IChemE members, to nominate their peers who are significantly contributing to make the world a better place.”
