SusChem Young Chemists Awards


SusChem-Spain announces the 13th edition of its SusChem Young Chemists Awards to recognise, encourage and promote scientific and informative activity among young researchers in the different areas of specialisation in chemistry.

Since 2008, the SusChem Awards have recognised the work of 50 young chemistry researchers, from among more than 900 nominations submitted, highlighting the work of these promising young chemistry researchers, both within and outside our borders, and showing the promising pool of researchers under the age of 40 in Spain. It is organized by SusChem-Spain, with the support of Spanish Chemical Industry Business Federation (FEIQUE), the Spanish National Association of Chemists and Chemical Engineers (ANQUE), the Spanish Conference of Chemistry Deans (CEDQ), Expoquimia, the Chemistry and Society Forum and Tecnalia Ventures. 

The deadline for submitting applications via the SusChem-Spain website ends on 31 May (until 5 p.m. CET). 

SusChem Awards, aimed at young chemical researchers under the age of 40, are divided into three different categories:

  • FUTURA: Prize for the best academic record in chemistry degree or any other related to science and chemical technologies and whose degree was obtained in 2020.
  • RESEARCH: Award to the author of the best scientific publication, with page number 2020, in any area of chemistry, and who was in possession of the title of doctor on 31 December 2020.
  • INNOVA: Prize for the best work developed from a public-private collaboration. The work submitted must have generated results in the last three years in any area related to Sustainable Chemistry, including work on the transition to the Circular Economy and Decarbonisation.
