Brian Kelly Award

Carbon Fullerene C60

Established 1996

This annual award from the British Carbon Group was established in 1996 in memory of Brian Kelly, an authority on graphite physics. Brian worked with the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) and its successor company, AEA Technology plc for most of his career before ending with an all-too-brief period as Visiting Professor at Bath University School of Materials. The fund which provides this award was established by his friends and colleagues following his untimely death.

The award in the form of a travel grant is given to students or young researchers to attend the International Carbon Conference.
