Alan Glanvill Award

The Alan Glanvill Award is presented annually for published work of particular merit in the field of polymers.

Eligible papers must have been published 2 years before the award is presented in a relevant IOM3 Journal, such as:

  • Interdisciplinary Science Reviews
  • International Materials Reviews
  • Materials Science & Technology
  • Plastics, Rubber & Composites: Macromolecular Engineering

The winner will receive a certificate and £450.00
