Nomination procedure

Members and non-members of the GDCh are welcome to make proposals. Self-nomination is not allowed. Propsals shall consist of a letter of nomination (one page) and a link to the homepage of the nominated person.

The GDCh Prizes acknowledge outstanding achievements for and within chemistry. Accordingly, the achievements of the prize winner, rather than experience or age of the nominee, will be decisive in the decision-making process. As progress in science can often follow unusal pathways, nominations that cross interdisciplinary borders, open up surprising new perspectives, or which at first glance are difficult to classify, are particularly welcome.

Please submit your proposal by October 15, 2010 to:
