Associate professor Rafal Klajn (Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel) will be awarded on September 21, 2016, the Netherlands Scholar Award for Supramolecular Chemistry by the Research Center for Functional Molecular Systems during a colloquium at The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in Amsterdam.
This prize is on recognition of his outstanding contribution to the field of supramolecular chemistry and responsive materials in an early stage of his career. From September 16 to 22, 2016, Dr. Rafal Klajn will visit several universities in the Netherlands as part of the lectureship connected to the award.
Coming Friday, September 16, he will visit the University of Groningen and will give a public lecture entitled: From dynamically self-assembling materials to chemical reactivity inside confined environments. This will take place at 15:00h in lecture room 5111.0022.
Please find here the announcement for the seminar.
Following on from the Netherlands Award for Supramolecular Chemistry, which was awarded to Nobel laureate Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn last year, the Research Center for Functional Molecular Systems has initiated the Netherlands Scholar Award for Supramolecular Chemistry. The scholar variant of the award aims to recognize and reward outstanding junior scientists (<40 years old) working in supramolecular chemistry and encourage excellence in the field. The Scholar Award is presented every other year, alternating with the senior award.
