A European Award for a Doctoral Thesis on Molecular Magnetism

Entries are now being accepted for the second "European Award on Molecular Magnetism Doctoral Thesis". The award will be given to young talented people entering the field of Molecular Magnetism and closely related disciplines. Interdisciplinary subjects, use of new techniques, finding possible new applications, discovery of new phenomena and methodologies, important steps in the advancement of knowledge of the behaviour of Molecular Magnets will particularly be kept into consideration by the jury.The jury will be composed of three international renowned scientists operating in the field.

Three awards will be given accompanied by a prize of 1.500 € plus the registration fee of the MOLMAT 2010, where the winners will be awarded their prize. The winners will also have the chance to present their work in a specially dedicated oral presentation at the European Master of Molecular Nanoscience.
