2018 EuChemS Lecture Awardee – Webinar

Mark your calendar!

The European Chemical Society, EuChemS, is pleased to organise the 2018 EuChemS Lecture Awardee Webinar. The online event will be held on Friday 13 November, from 10:00 to 11:30 CEST. During this event, Raffaella Buonsanti, EuChemS 2018 Lecturer, will give a talk on “Colloidal chemistry for tunable nanocrystals as CO2 conversion catalysts“.

Raffaella Buonsanti obtained her PhD in Nanochemistry in 2010 at the National Nanotechnology Laboratory in Lecce (Italy), with Prof. Davide Cozzoli. Then, she moved to California where she spent over five years at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, first as a postdoc and project scientist at the Molecular Foundry, with Prof. Delia Milliron (now at UT Austin), and after as a tenure-track staff scientist and principal investigator in the Joint Centre for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP). She is currently a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Institute of Chemical Sciences and Engineering at EPFL in Switzerland.

In recognition of the major achievements of one junior scientist working in chemistry in a country with a EuChemS Member Organisation, Raffaella Buonsanti was awarded the EuChemS Lecture Award in 2018. Usually, the winner gets the opportunity to give a lecture at the next European Chemistry Congress (ECC) or at a conference of a EuChemS Professional Network (PN). However this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the postponement of the 8th European Chemistry Congress (ECC8) to 2022, the event will take place online.

More information on the registration link and the programme for this event will be provided soon.

The call for submissions for the EuChemS Lecture Award 2020 is currently open. Before submitting a nomination, we kindly ask you to read carefully the guidelines for this award. You have until 31 December 2020, 23:59 CEST, to submit your nomination.
