Following the recommendation of the International Award Committee for EuChemS Gold Medal (IACM), chaired by Joachim Sauer, the EuChemS Executive Board has decided to award the 2024 EuChemS Gold Medal to Avelino Corma, for his exceptional achievements in the field of chemistry.
The 49th World Chemistry Congress of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, combined with the 11th edition of the Dutch chemistry conference CHAINS, organised by the Committee led by Floris Rutjes, EuChemS President, was held in The Hague on 20-25 August. The European Chemical Society’s booth at the event attracted many members of the global chemistry community.
Representatives of the European Chemical Society (EuChemS) and the American Chemical Society (ACS) met in August, during the IUPAC Chemistry congress to sign a Memorandum of Understanding, furthering collaboration in chemistry over the Atlantic.
9-11 October 2023 – Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences, Dornbirn, Austria.
15-19 October 2023 – University of Aveiro, Portugal
15-19 October 2023 – NAPOLI, ITALY
Presenting awards to outstanding scientists are some of the most visible activities of grass-root organisations such as the chemical societies of Europe and their umbrella, EuChemS. Awards have many benefits to the societies beyond promoting individual careers – they can help building communities, motivate and inspire by setting examples for young scientists and help highlighting and communicating important achievements in specific scientific fields to a much broader audience.
Felix Plasser is the first awardee of the EuChemS Walter Thiel Award in Computational and Theoretical Chemistry. The Award is established by the EuChemS Division of Computational and Theoretical Chemistry to recognise an outstanding scientific contribution of a young researcher based in Europe, and is awarded every two years.
