Exerowa-Platikanov Award

The prize will be awarded for the best oral presentations of young scientists. 

In May 2018 the European Colloid and Interface Society and the Department of Interfaces and Colloids in the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (IPC-BAS) agreed upon the creation of the ECIS-Exerowa-Platikanov Award for the best oral contribution in the thematic trend of Surface Forces, Foams and Emulsions, presented by a young scientist at the annual ECIS Conferences. 

Applicants must possess a PhD with a scientific activity not longer than the PhD plus 7 years. 

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. 

The award consisting in 600,00 € and a certificate will be handed over by the representative of Department of Interfaces and Colloids in IPC-BAS to one young scientist.
