Luigi Mondello © Luigi MondelloLoGorton © LoGortonSpringer is sponsoring two key prize lectures at the upcoming EUROANALYSIS XIX conference, which will be held in Stockholm, Sweden from 28 August to 1 September, 2017. The conference is organized by the Division of Analytical Chemistry (DAC) of EuCheMS (the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences), and provides participants with an overview of current research in analytical chemistry. 

This year’s Robert Kellner Lecture award goes to Luigi Mondello, professor of analytical chemistry at the University of Messina, Italy. The prize is given to a European scientist who has made substantial contributions to the advancement of analytical chemistry research or education in the last five years. 

The 2017 DAC-EuCheMS Award lecture is given to Lo Gorton, professor of biochemistry and structural biology at Lund University, Sweden. This award is presented to a European scientist who has demonstrated significant and sustained achievements in analytical chemistry research or education throughout his or her career. 

Slavica Ražić, Chair of the steering committee of DAC and professor at Belgrade University in Serbia, said: „Every two years the EUROANALYSIS series of conferences, organized by the DAC of EuCheMS, presents the latest developments in analytical chemistry. These findings are relevant not only to all branches of chemistry, but are important in the biological sciences, engineering, medicine, public health and the environment. We are delighted that two of the major lectures at the next EUROANALYSIS conference will be sponsored by Springer.”

Steffen Pauly, Editorial Director for chemistry at Springer explained: “Early on in our 175-year history we started to publish books and journals in analytical science, and we will continue with that tradition. The journal Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, for example, co-owned by major European Chemical Societies, provides a forum for excellent research in this field. We appreciate the partnership with the DAC of EuCheMS and gladly support the Robert Kellner Lecture and the DAC-EuCheMS Award lecture.” 

EuCheMS, the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences, aims to nurture a platform for scientific discussion and to provide a single, unbiased European voice on key policy issues in chemistry and related fields. Representing more than 160,000 chemists from more than 40 Member Societies and other chemistry-related organisations, EuCheMS relies on a unique network of active researchers involved in all the fields of chemistry.  Through this network, EuCheMS organises several specialised academic conferences as well as the biannual EuCheMS Chemistry Congress, the European congress of chemical sciences. EuCheMS also promotes the role and image of the chemical sciences among the general public and policy-makers through social media, newsletters and through the organisation of conferences and workshops open to society. Through the promotion of chemistry and by providing expert and scientific advice, EuCheMS aims to contribute to solutions for today ́s major societal challenges.
