Enzo Ferroni Award

On 13 Dec 2013, ECIS and the “Prof. Enzo Ferroni Foundation” have agreed upon the creation of the Enzo Ferroni Award for a Young Scientist to acknowledge the top level scientific activity of young researchers in the field of colloid and interface science. 

Starting from 2019, the Ferroni Foundation will support three individual prizes every year. Each award will consist in € 500,00.

The prize will be awarded for the best oral presentation of a young scientist.

Applicants must possess a M.Sc degree and must have been actively engaged in scientific research for a period of time shorter than the PhD plus 1 year.

For the application procedure please consult the conference website. 

The decision will be taken during the annual meeting by a special Jury nominated by the Chair of the Conference.
