The ACS Sustainable Chemeistry and Engineering Lectureship Awards

ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering and the ACS Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Division are seeking nominations for the inaugural ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering Lectureship awards, which will recognize and honor the contributions of three early career investigators from around the world who are doing exceptional research that impacts sustainability, green chemistry, or green engineering. The awards are intended to be global in scope, reflecting the global author base and readership of ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering. One recipient will be chosen from each of the following three regions: The Americas, Europe/Middle East/Africa, and Asia/Pacific.

The first ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering Lectureship awards will be presented in a special symposium session of the ACS Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Division at the 253rd ACS National Meeting in San Francisco, CA (April 2-6, 2017) to honor the recipients. The Lectureship award winners will each receive an award plaque, $1,000 USD honorarium, and assistance with travel and lodging costs.
