NCCC-XV: Poster and Lecture Awards

13. 3. 2014 | Irene

The successful 15th Netherlands’ Catalysis and Chemistry Conference (NCCC-XV) has been visited by over 500 participants from The Netherlands and abroad, having a background in academia and/or industry. Inspiring keynote speakers have been able to attract the attention of the participants which resulted in many animated discussions scattered over the three days.

Next to the various lecture and poster sessions, PhD students and post-docs obtained better insights into their career opportunities at the very much appreciated Career Development & Opportunities session. Also the NIOK PhD Platform presented itself with a very nice Bowling Night in the Cheers Sport café and the awarding ceremony of the ‘non-official’ poster awards (for the Einstein award, the Walt Disney award, the Mandela award etc.). More of their upcoming activities can be found at their dedicated section of this website (NPP).

Each year poster and lecture awards have been handed over to promising young scientists. The VIRAN Poster Awards are handed over by Eelco Vogt (Albemarle, chairman of VIRAN) and the NIOK Lecture Awards by Emiel Hensen (TU/e, chairman of the NIOK board):

The awards for the best posters at NCCC-XIV were awarded to Tom Bosserez (KU Leuven) and Miriam de Torres (Radboud University Nijmegen). The prizes consist of a plaque and € 500, sponsored by VIRAN. From left to right on the photo: Tom, Miriam and Eelco.
