The Institution of Chemical Engineers’ (IChemE) 2021 medals and prizes are now open for nominations. Each year, 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 for outstanding contributions to the Institution from volunteers. Several of the accolades commemorate some of the most illustrious leaders in chemical engineering and their historical achievements, according to the organization.
The nominations close on October 31, 2020. IChemE says it would like to celebrate and honor outstanding chemical engineers from all nations and ethnicities worldwide and particularly encourages nominations of women and chemical engineers from minority groups. The winners will be announced in 2021 and presented at various events throughout the year.
“With so many different medals and prizes to be awarded, there is a category for everyone,” says IChemE Vice President Learned Society and Chair of IChemE's Medals and Prizes Committee Jarka Glassey. “From the Trustees Medal awarded to a volunteer who has given exceptional service to an IChemE special project, to the Morton Medal awarded to an individual for their dedication to excellent in chemical engineering education, the awards program allows individuals or groups in all stages of their careers to receive the acknowledgement they deserve.”
