Next up: NVK Young Researchers Retreat

On September 29th and 30th, 2022, we are organizing the NVK Young Researchers Retreat! Please find the preliminary program and registration details here.

All participants will present their work, both PhD students and early researchers working in industry or industry are welcome to contribute, which will result in a wonderful and inspiring program! Our key-note speaker, Dr. Yesid A. Ramirez, will talk about his research related to . Additionally there will be plenty of time to network with our sponsors from industry, and of course with your fellow young crystallographers. Also, the career session will provide a overview of career options and plenty of time to discuss these with people who have been in the field for a longer time, both industry and academic science.

In short: interesting science, plenty of options to network, think a bit about your future career, and of course we will have a lot of fun! We hope to see you there!

Registrations are open!

Please register for the NVK symposium on “Reflections on Diffraction”. PhD students and early postdocs are also welcome to register for the Young Researchers Retreat 2022.

The symposium and ALV will be held on June 17th in Utrecht. Find more information about the day full of interesting lectures and the possibility to meet up again with old friends and colleagues here.

The Young Researchers Retreat will be held on September 29th and 30th in Nunspeet. Find more information about those two days packed with crystallography, a lot of fun and an excellent opportunity for networking with fellow young scientists here.

Nominations for the ECAPerutz Prize, HCS/ECA Kálmán Prize and ECA/ENSA Bertaut prize

It is still possible to nominate scientists for the ECA Perutz Prize 2022, HCS/ECA Kálmán Prize 2022, and ECA/ENSA Bertaut prize 2022.
The deadline for nominations is the 15th of April.

The European Crystallographic Association (ECA) is pleased to announce a call for nominations for three different prizes:

• the twelfth Max Perutz Prize. This Prize will be awarded in recognition of meritorious achievements in any branch of crystallography to an individual scientist clearly affiliated with the ECA. More information can be found here.

• the second Alajos Kálmán Prize. This Prize will be awarded to an individual researcher in recognition for outstanding scientific contributions in the field of structural sciences within the last 5-10 years. The nominee must have a clear affiliation with ECA. The prize has been established by the Hungarian Chemical Society and is endorsed by ECA. More information here.

• the tenth Erwin Félix Lewy Bertaut Prize. This prize is awarded to a young scientist (up to 8 years after finishing her or his PhD thesis) having a clear affiliation with the ECA/ENSA region, in recognition of notable experimental, methodological or theoretical contributions to the investigation of matter using crystallographic or neutron scattering methods. The European Neutron Scattering Association (ENSA) and ECA award the Bertaut Prize in a regular alternating sequence, or as specified by the two associations based on mutual agreement. More information here.

The prizes will be awarded at the next European Crystallographic Meeting (23 – 27 August 2022) in Versailles, France.
