Harry - the fullerene legacy

Organised by:

the British Carbon Group

University of Sussex

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

Professor Sir Harold W Kroto, FRS Nobel Laureate (Harry) made unique and prodigious contributions to science, expanding its frontiers and nurturing its health. He spawned new fields of science, particularly carbon science, he advocated for science and reason, and he inspired the young. It is with great sadness that we learned that Harry died on 30 April this year after a courageous struggle with illness.

The British Carbon Group will be holding an event on fullerenes on the morning of 26 August in commemoration of Professor Kroto. The event will also feature the 2016 Ubbelohde Lecture by Professor Eleanor Campbell FRS, and some members of Harry's former group and eminent international collaborators. The event will precede the afternoon event held by the University of Sussex and Harry's family, 'Remembering Harry' to which all attendees are also welcome to join.
