The Wesley Cocker Award

Wesley Cocker

The Wesley Cocker Award

Professor Cocker (1908-2007) was instrumental in establishing the Irish Section of SCI in 1947. The award named in his honour is given to the best paper or patent on a topic of relevance to industrial chemistry, where the main author is a PhD or BSc student in Ireland, and is a member of the Society.

The Wesley Cocker Award aims to recognise a young scientist – PhD student or undergraduate – in  Ireland who has made a major contribution in some aspect of chemistry relevant to Irish industry.

Applications by young scientists who meet the above criteria are invited for this award. The selection is undertaken by a panel including academics and industrialists.

The winner receives a €500 cash prize and a year's SCI membership, paid for by the SCI All Ireland Group. The award is presented at the Group's AGM or other suitable event.

Please note applications/nominations for the 2015 Wesley Cocker Award are now closed. We will be inviting applications/nominations for the 2016 Wesley Cocker Award in Spring 2016.
