Beilby Medal & Prize

The Beilby Medal and Prize is sustained by a Trust Fund commemorating Sir George Beilby FRS who was President of The Society of Chemical Industry from 1898-99, The Institute of Chemistry from 1902-12 and The Institute of Metals from 1916-18, and founding chairman of the Fuel Research Board. The award is administered in rotation by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and the Society of Chemical Industry (SCI).

The 2019 Award was administered by IOM3. The 2021 award is being administered by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

The Beilby Medal and Prize is awarded annually to a scientist or engineer to recogise substantial work of exceptional practical significance in applied materials science, chemical engineering, energy efficiency or a related field. Preference is given to candidates in the early stages of their career.

The award is open to members of IOM3, RSC and SCI and non-members based in the UK or overseas.
