FEMS Lecturer Awards for Excellence in MSE
This is a scheme which sponsors selected young materials scientists to lecture throughout Europe as "ambassadors" of the materials science community. Lecturers are selected based on the broad significance of their work and their ability to communicate effectively. Each Lecturer tours several materials science centres in different European countries, with the costs of the lecture tour being carried by FEMS and/or the hosting institution. In addition the lecturers are requested to give a talk at the EUROMAT conference taking place the year after their election.
The lectures serve two purposes:
- to disseminate knowledge on important subjects; and
- to expose the work of young researchers in Europe.
Each FEMS Lecturer offers a specific talk with a corresponding abstract. The lectures are arranged in three different European countries. The Award consists of financing of the lecture tour by FEMS (up to a limit of € 1500) and a prize of € 1500 payable on completion of the tour. Those interested in hosting a Lecturer can receive further information by contacting the FEMS Secretariat.
