AkzoNobel Launches Science Award in China

Thursday, December 3, 2009

Comment | More

Major coating and chemical maker AkzoNobel has launched its Science Award in China. Established in partnership with the Chinese Chemical Society, the honor—to be known as the AkzoNobel Chemical Sciences Award—will be granted to three distinguished scientists every two years.

Originally set up in 1970 to recognize groundbreaking interdisciplinary research and outstanding scientific contributions, the current AkzoNobel Science Award is presented annually and alternates between Sweden and the Netherlands.

Nominations for the first award will take place in early 2010. The laureates—who will each receive a prize of RMB 100,000—will be selected by an independent panel convened by the Chinese Chemical Society. They will receive their award at a special ceremony to be staged during the annual meeting of the Chinese Chemical Society in June 2010.

“This award not only represents an important part of our heritage, but also indicates that we share the same goal of encouraging pioneering scientific research in China with our partner, the Chinese Chemical Society,” explained AkzoNobel Board member Leif Darner, who officially launched the new award December 1, 2009, in Shanghai.

Added Mr. Fu Xi, Vice President of the Chinese Chemical Society, “China has embarked on a strategy of growth and invigoration through science and education and we are pleased that AkzoNobel shares this aim through the introduction of this new award.”

AkzoNobel is based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. With 25 manufacturing facilities and more than 6,000 employees throughout China, AkzoNobel has been making substantial investments in China since the early 1980s. Production at the newest site, in Ningbo, will come on stream early next year, the company said.
