PRISM 2023 Award Ceremony


Dear Colleagues,

We are now in the 3rd year of the Prize of the Istituto di Struttura della Materia (PRISM). The award is presented annually by an international jury to two scientists having achieved outstanding breakthroughs in the field of the Science of Materials in the last 5 years.

Two prize categories are awarded:
- PRISM Senior for scientists older than 35 years,
- PRISM Junior for those under 35.

For the Senior PRISM category, the Prize has been awarded to Federico Capasso - Robert L. Wallace Professor of Applied Physics and Vinton Hayes Senior Research Fellow in Electrical Engineering, John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University - USA
For the Junior PRISM category, the Prize has been awarded to Nicola Gasparini - Lecturer in Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Imperial College London - UK

The award ceremony will take place at the Marconi Hall of the National Research Council, P.le Aldo Moro 7 in Rome, and will be broadcast live on the social media channels of CNR-ISM on October 24th at 3:00 PM (CEST).
