Slavica Ražić, Chair of the steering committee of DAC and professor at Belgrade University in Serbia, said: „No matter how the circumstances shape our activities in real life, it is important to keep the system of validation and express respect to extraordinary and valuable people and their accomplishments. That's why the Division of Analytical Chemistry of European Chemical Society (DAC-EuChemS) is organising a webinar and hosting the awardees of the DAC-EuChemS Award, Professor Aldo Roda, and the Robert Kellner Lecture (RKL), Professor Karen Faulds. This online event will be a platform for the celebration of analytical science. Thanks go to Springer and EuChemS for traditionally good cooperation and support.”

Steffen Pauly, Editorial Director for chemistry at Springer Nature explained: “Pursuing our mission of advancing discovery also in analytical chemistry, we gladly support DAC-EuChemS in recognizing outstanding researchers through these awards. This reflects our close ties to the European analytical chemistry community. The journal Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, for example, co-owned by major European Chemical Societies, provides a forum for excellent research in this field.”
