Call for nominations for APEC Science Prize for Innovation, Research and Education (ASPIRE) 2018 – OPEN
The Australian Academy of Science invites nominations from Australian researchers for the APEC Science Prize for Innovation, Research and Education (ASPIRE) 2018.
The ASPIRE prize is an annual award which recognises young scientists who have demonstrated a commitment to both excellence in scientific research, as evidenced by scholarly publication, and cooperation with scientists from other APEC member economies as demonstrated by the impact to APEC economies through market-led innovation.
The theme for this year is ‘New Material Technologies’ and disciplines under this theme include materials and biomaterials science, polymer chemistry, chemical and mechanical engineering, solid-state physics, nanotechnology and other relevant fields. To be eligible, Australian researchers must be under 40 years of age by 31 December 2018 and be an Australian citizen or Australian permanent resident living in Australia at time of application.
The call for nominations for the 2018 Prize opened today and will close on Wednesday 11 April 2018. The nomination form and further information can be found here:
