Valencia, 9th - 13th July 2018
We are proud to announce the Euromembrane 2018 conference organised by the membrane group of the Research Institute for Industrial, Radiophysical and Environmental Safety (from the Universitat Politècnica de València) on behalf of the European Membrane Society (EMS). The series of Euromembrane Conferences have been an outstanding forum for an intensive and inspiring exchange of knowledge in a broad range of membrane science and technology. The aim of the Euromembrane 2018 Conference is to bring together academic and industrial scientists from the field of membrane science and technology to stimulate contacts and to exchange new ideas on their research work.
We are also proud to announce that during this edition of the Euromembrane 2018 conference series, the Patrick Meares Prize Symposium will be held for the first time. Patrick Meares was one of the pioneers of membrane science. After having received a donation from the late Patrick Meares, the EMS council established the Patrick Meares Prize for the best Ph.D. thesis work on membrane science. The selection of the winner will be performed during this Symposium and the prize will be given during the closing ceremony. More information on the Patrick Meares Prize can be found at www.emsoc.eu
To encourage the participation of students and young researchers (0-8 years after the PhD), the EMS has launched several grants. Information on the eligibility and how to apply can be found at www.emsoc.eu. Moreover, the EMS will give three awards to the best oral and poster presenting students, respectively. And the journals Polymers and Membranes (open access journals from MDPI) will support Euromembrane delivering two awards for the students (best oral and best poster presentations).
