Nominate an outstanding separation scientist for the 2017 Knox Medal

The Knox Medal is awarded by the SSG to honour individuals deserving special recognition of their innovation or influential work in the field of separation science.

We are pleased to announce that nominations for the 2017 Medal are now open.

Anyone, from any sector (academic or other), whose work in the field of separation science is innovative, influential and has recognised excellence in development, application, training and/or dissemination of information and results is eligible for this award. Nomination is via an open nomination system from within the scientific community. A nominee must be proposed and seconded by separate individuals, each of whom must produce a one-page justification for the award that meets the defined criteria. Self-nominations or nominations for persons from within the nominator’s own institution are not eligible and will not be accepted. The committee of the SSG will judge the nominations for the award in line with the criteria published on our website. The decision of this group is final.

If you wish to nominate a deserving separation scientist to be considered for the Knox Medal, please send appropriate paperwork to Prof John Langley by Friday May 12th, 2017 for consideration at the June committe meeting.
