The Ilya Prigogine Prize is endowed with an amount of 2000 Euros in addition to a diploma. The prize honours Ph.D. dissertations/theses accomplished by young researchers, defended between 01 January 2021 and 31 December 2022. All aspects and branches of thermodynamics are considered, from applied and experimental to the most theoretical.
This prize, organized by ECAST, was patronized by the Nobel Prize laureate Ilya Prigogine personally, while he was alive. Every two years, it is bestowed on a promising young researcher in thermodynamics for his/her Ph.D. dissertation/thesis. Its calendar is linked to that of the Joint European Thermodynamics Conference (JETC).
The applications will be examined by a selection committee of about ten scientists from different European countries. They will act as experts themselves and/or will choose the best experts in the domains concerned. The composition of the selection committee will be made public.
Conferral of the 2023 Prize:
The prize will be conferred solemnly during the JETC2023 meeting which will be held in Salerno (Italy), June 12 – 17, 2023. The recipient will on this occasion give an oral presentation of his/her work. The candidates will be informed of the results by 21 April 2023.
