Materials Today Embracing Challenge Award
The Materials Today ‘Embracing Challenge award’ aims to recognize researchers in the field of materials science and engineering who have overcome difficult circumstances to pursue their research career, however early or advanced, and are contributing meaningful insights in their particular field of investigation. ‘Difficult circumstances’ may include challenges arising from gender, socioeconomic background, ethnicity/culture, disability, and/or the local economic environment. Most importantly Materials Today is seeking to acknowledge and support individuals who have faced their specific challenge and worked to overcome obstacles in order to continue their contribution to the research community. Please note that publication record is not the sole criterion for nomination. The winner will be selected to receive an award of USD 5,000 and a travel grant to attend the award ceremony during an upcoming Materials Today event in 2018.
