BACG Young Scientists Award
The BACG has established this annual award to recognise achievement by young scientists publishing work in the field of crystal growth. The winner will receive a cheque for £300 and an engraved medal. They will present the work as an invited talk in ISIC/BACG 2023 (https://www.isic2023.com), after which the formal presentation of the award will be made by the President of the BACG during the conference.
The award is made annually to the candidate achieving the most significant advance in the understanding of the theory, practice or characterisation of crystal growth processes published in the scientific literature in the previous three calendar years.
