Young researchers’ prize

The international scientific journal Chimica oggi - Chemistry today rewards the most promising young Italian chemists.

UNESCO has proclaimed 2011 the “International Year of Chemistry”, exactly 100 years after Marie Curie was awarded with The Nobel Prize for Chemistry.

The international scientific journal Chimica oggi – Chemistry today has decided to join in the celebrations of this important anniversary by granting three awards to young researchers in chemistry.

Silvana Maini, Editorial Director of Chimica oggi – Chemistry today, says: “By granting these awards, Chimica oggi/Chemistry Today wants to encourage the young generations, the chemists of tomorrow, and also invite the many chemical companies to invest in and be more open towards these young chemists, which desperately seek an opportunity to emerge, especially today when Italian research is struggling!”.

Participants have developed their own projects, pertaining to three chemistry fields of particular industrial interest, and then have sent their works to a panel of world renowned experts for evaluation.

The authors of the best three works will be awarded in Milano on the 6th of October 2011 during the conference event organised by the Italian Society for Chemistry (SCI) taking place within the ChemMed fair in Milano, Area 3 of Fieramilanocity.

On the same occasion, our publishing group will be presenting “Milestones in Chemistry”, a celebrative monograph of the journal Chimica oggi – Chemistry today where we have collected a number of articles illustrating the most important milestones in chemistry.
