Wesley Cocker Award – Nominations Deadline Extended to 31 July 2015

15 Jun 2015

The Wesley Cocker Award, an annual award given by SCI’s All Ireland Group is named in the honour of Professor Wesley Cocker. Prof Cocker (1908-2007) was instrumental in establishing the Irish Section of SCI in 1947. The award 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.

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

Nominations are assessed on the quality of a publication, poster or patent from the previous year (2014), on which the nominee’s name appears, and where their supervisor asserts that they have made the major contribution.
