Awards and Prizes

European Crystallography Prize

The European Crystallographic Association (ECA) announces the establishment of the European Crystallography Prize to recognize a significant achievement or discovery in crystallography in the past 5-10 years. Nominees should be affiliated or identified with the European crystallographic community, including South Africa, as broadly defined in the charter of the ECA.

Nominations for the prize should include a statement of the contribution for which the prize is to be awarded, reprints of relevant published papers, a short curriculum vitae of the nominee, and the signatures of at least three additional nominators, preferably with letters supporting the nomination.

The inaugural prize will be presented at the opening ceremony of 19th European Crystallography Meeting (ECM-19) to be held in Nancy, France, August 25-31, 2000.
