For the most outstanding paper in the metallurgy and technology of vanadium and its alloys.
Our Awards for Published Work span the whole field of materials production, processing, structure, properties and applications and their inter-relationships. They cover scientific and technological aspects of the spectrum of material types including biomaterials and electronic materials. The awards are made for publications of particular merit, in the form of papers, or groups of papers, published by the Institute in journals within a two-year period preceding the year of the awards.
A particular emphasis of the awards is to recognise and encourage the achievements of scientists and technologists in the early stages of their careers in industry or in university or research organisations. Publications by more senior workers are also eligible for consideration.
Unless otherwise indicated (ie for specific medals and prizes for published work), the prize is £450 per award (divided equally between the authors).
