IUPAC biannually selects twelve awardees from a large pool of international nominations. Loos is just the second Netherlands based chemist who receives this important recognition. The IUPAC awards program was created to acknowledge and promote the work of women chemists/chemical engineers worldwide. This fits well with the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, which is a global day celebrating achievement and promoting full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls on February 11 each year.
