Nanoscience and engineering awards nomination sought

Each year, AIChE’s Nanoscale Science and Engineering Forum (NSEF) acknowledges the contributions of engineers and scientists to the field of nanoscience and engineering with two awards, the Forum Award and the Young Investigator Award.

The Forum Award recognizes outstanding contributions to the advancement of nanoscale science and engineering in the field of Chemical Engineering through scholarship, commercialization, education, or service.

The Young Investigator Award recognizes outstanding scholarship, commercialization, education, or service in nanoscience and nanotechnology by engineers or scientists in the early stages of their professional careers (within 10 years of completion of highest degree).

The NSEF especially encourages applications from women and under-represented minorities. In addition, the NSEF equally encourages applications from academia, government, and industry members.

Past winners and additional information regarding the awards can be found on the AIChE NSEF site at: Recipients of each award are invited to present their work at the NSEF Plenary Session, “Chemical Engineering Principles for Nanotechnology” at the Fall Annual Meeting (this year in Pittsburgh, Oct 28-Nov 2). Award plaques are presented at this session or at the NSEF reception. Please direct any questions to the awards committee chair, Dr. Jessica Winter (
