DECHEMA and the German Catalysis Society (GeCatS) invite researchers and scientists to propose international candidates who have made significant contributions in this field, especially with regard to application-oriented research. The Otto Roelen Medal is endowed with 5,000 Euro and sponsored by the Oxea Group. Nominations will be evaluated by the Expert Committee of the Otto Roelen Medal. The prize will be awarded in a public ceremony at the Annual Meeting of German Catalysis Researchers in March 2018 in Weimar/Germany.
Proposals for nominations should be submitted before 15th September 2017 via:
Proposals should be accompanied by a detailed justification, the candidate’s CV and a list of publications and patents. Submission of exemplary publications in internationally renowned scientific journals as well as reference letters from industry is also appreciated. Self-nominations are not accepted.
The Otto Roelen Medal was initiated in 1997 by Hoechst AG and is named after the discoverer of hydroformulation. Originally limited to the field of homogeneous catalysis, the prize is now open to international researchers in the whole field of catalysis. Former award-winners include Prof. Dr. Matthias Beller, Institut für Organische Katalyseforschung (1997), Prof. Dr. Kay Severin, ETH Lausanne/CH (2005), Prof. Dr. Michael Buchmeiser, Universität Stuttgart (2010), Prof. Dr. Javier Pérez-Ramírez, ETH Zürich/CH (2012), Prof. Dr. Harald Gröger, University of Bielefeld (2014) and Prof. Dr. Peter Strasser, TU Berlin (2016).
