Announcement of a new International Prize from IOCD

The International Organization for Chemical Sciences in Development (IOCD), on the occasion of its 20th anniversary, is pleased to announce the initiation of the Pierre Crabbé-IOCD Prize. Pierre Crabbé was a distinguished Belgian scientist who conceived and, in 1981, founded IOCD as an international organization for helping scientists in developing countries. He served as its director until his untimely death in 1987. IOCD has continued to pursue its mission of collaborating with scientists in developing countries in major ways.

This Prize will be awarded in 2002 to the person who the Prize Committee finds has made the most significant contribution during the past two years to the encouragement of better science and education in a developing country. The Prize will consist of a medal and a USD 10000 cash award.

Any person with interest in the developing world may nominate one or more candidates for the Pierre Crabbé-IOCD Prize. A nominee may be from any country, but special attention will be given to those from developing countries. The nomination, not longer than one typed page, should consist of the following:

  1. a short description (no more than 150 words) of the work of the candidate that supports the nomination;
  2. a curriculum vitae of no more that 10 lines in length;
  3. a statement of the impact of the work.

Nominations should be submitted no later than 31 March 2002 to:
Executive Director, IOCD
P.O. Box 8156
Falls Church, Virginia 22041 USA
