IChemE Adds More Medals to Recognize Academic Achievement

Oct. 6, 2014
Seven new international medals award the outstanding contributions of chemical engineers.

The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) has established seven new international medals to recognize the achievements of researchers and academics in chemical engineering in fields such as particle technology, separations, thermodynamics and transport phenomena.

The Institution has been awarding medals and prizes since 1928 when the Osborne Reynolds medal (now known as the Arnold Greene medal) was presented to former IChemE president Sir Alexander Gibb.

The new medals are open to IChemE members and non-members, and include:

  • Career Achievement medal
  • Early Careers medal
  • Research in Particle Technology medal
  • Research in Separations medal
  • Research in Thermodynamics and Complex Fluids medal
  • Research in Transport Phenomena medal
  • Research in Computer Aided Product and Process Engineering medal

The latest additions mean that IChemE can present up to 27 peer-reviewed medals and prizes each year to recognize the outstanding contribution being made by chemical engineers worldwide.
