W. H. & W. L. Bragg Prize

In 2017 the IUCr established the W. H. & W. L. Bragg Prize to be awarded to up to two promising early-career crystallographers. The Prize will be awarded at IUCr Congresses. The awardee(s) will receive a certificate and a financial reward, and will be invited to make a presentation at the Congress on a topic related to the prize citation.

Research achievement relative to opportunity will define the eligibility of candidates for this award. For this purpose an “early-career researcher” is defined as one who received their PhD no more than 10 years before the closing date for nominations. Academic interruptions, including periods of parental leave, will be taken into account if clearly indicated in the letter of support accompanying the nomination.

Call for nominations for the first Bragg Prize

The IUCr is pleased to invite nominations for the first Bragg Prize, which will be presented at the Prague Congress in August 2020.

Nominations should be submitted electronically using the Bragg Prize Nomination Form to the IUCr Executive Secretary at braggprize@iucr.orgThe closing date for nominations is 31 August 2019. More information can be found here.
