Materials: A Symposium and New Award
a new agreement, the IUPAC Polymer Division and DSM Innovation
Center B.V. will organize a symposium on performance materials
to be held during each biennial IUPAC World Polymer Congress.
A Performance Materials Award in the amount of EUR 50 000
also will be presented during one of the plenary sessions
of the congress program at each symposium. DSM will cover
the cost of the symposium, including speakers’ fees
and travel costs, and any technical equipment required.
Nomination Committee will nominate candidates for the Performance
Materials Award. DSM and IUPAC will each be represented by
two members on the Committee, and DSM will also appoint two
independent members. The Judging Committee for the award will
be comprised of three members representing DSM and two members
representing IUPAC. A DSM representative will chair both committees.
The award will be presented at the next three World Polymer
Congresses. IUPAC and DMS will evaluate whether future awards
will take place.
