NANOSMAT Prize & "Outstanding Young Scientist Award"

NANOSMAT honors and recognizes international scientists who have shown, during the course of their professional career, outstanding achievements in the fields of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
The following two awards have been set up in order to recognise and honour the achievements of both senior and outstanding, dynamic young scientists and researchers.
(i) NANOSMAT Prize - The NANOSMAT Prize was set up in 2009 and since then it has become very popular and very prestigious amongst high calibre senior international scientists. Scroll to the bottom of this page for past NANOSMAT Prize receipients. 
(ii) Outstanding Young Scientist Award (OYSA) - The first such award will be made in 2014 during the 9th NANOSMAT conference to be held in Dublin, Ireland during 8-11 September 2014.
