IChemE Medals Committee Chair encourages recognition of professional excellence

01 September 2023

Members of the chemical engineering profession are being urged to celebrate the outstanding work of their colleagues with nominations for an IChemE medal by the incoming Chair of the Institution of Chemical Engineers’ (IChemE) Medals and Prizes Committee.

The IChemE Medals and Prizes Committee makes annual awards to individuals and groups whose work in research, teaching and service to the profession is regarded as world-leading; exceptional IChemE volunteer contributions are also celebrated. Nominations open today, 1 September 2023 and close on 31 October 2023.

IChemE Fellow Professor Mark Simmons said: “As I take over as Chair of the IChemE Medals and Prizes Committee, I’m very much looking forward to reading this year’s nominations and discovering more fantastic examples of how our profession is shaping the world. The role of chemical engineers has never been more important as we embrace the challenges of climate change and the move to net zero with the development of sustainable new processes and products across diverse industry sectors.

“IChemE’s medals and prizes are a beacon of excellence for our profession, providing international recognition for excellent work in both industry and academia. They are an important opportunity to spotlight chemical engineers who, at all points in their careers, are producing remarkable contributions to the profession and the Institution, delivering novel solutions and making sustained efforts to address the challenges at the heart of our global society.

“I also want to ensure we continue IChemE’s drive to celebrate the work of a diverse mix of chemical engineers and so the Committee will particularly welcome nominations from women and minority groups.”

Twenty-two IChemE medals and prizes are now open to receive nominations, giving chemical engineers the opportunity to celebrate varied aspects of their profession, from the promising work of early career researchers, to key progress towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and thought leadership in industry.
