Group prizes

The Polymer Physics Group awards two prizes:

Polymer Physics Group Founders Prize
Awarded to a scientist who has made an outstanding contribution to Polymer Physics in the UK or Ireland.

Ian Macmillan Ward Prize for the Best Student Publication
The prize recognises the most outstanding publication by a PhD student on a subject within the Polymer Physics Group’s remit.

The group also sponsor a lecture exchange with the Division of Polymer Physics of the American Physical Society (APS). Starting with meetings in 2009 and offering every two years to coincide with PPG biennial meetings, each group will choose a young polymer scientist who will present an invited lecture at the meeting of the other group.
