Congratulations to our own Dr. Kevin J. Smith for being awarded the Canadian Catalysis Lectureship Award for 2012 by the Catalysis Division of the Chemical Institute of Canada. The award is sponsored by the Canadian Catalysis Foundation (CCF) and provides funding for Dr. Smith to present his research at selected locations across Canada.
Canadian Catalysis Lectureship Award (CCLA)
The CCF created and sponsors the Canadian Catalysis Lectureship Award. The lectureship is restricted to
Canadians who are currently working in Canada in the area of catalysis, and is intended to provide
exposure for Canadian scientists and engineers. The lecture tour is to be held annually,
and to include 4 to 6 Canadian cities. It will be offered to a limited number of
locations in the USA as well, the sites to be determined through The North American
Catalysis Society, of which The Catalysis Division of CIC is a member. The recipient
will be chosen by a committee appointed by The Catalysis Division, and could be
either a researcher recognized as a leader in a particular field of research, or someone
who has just completed a new and interesting or controversial piece of work but who
is not yet widely recognized.
