As part of its awards and recognitions program, IAAM offers a wide range of honours and recognitions in the field of materials science, engineering, and technology to scientific researchers- individuals as well as organizations around the world. The association aims to positively catalyse the advancement of materials to sustainable and green world through this esteemed awards and recognitions program.

The Award

The Advanced Materials Award is a highly coveted title that the association presents to worthy and deserving researchers and scientists. All the elite researchers who are shortlisted for this honour are required to deliver the Advanced Materials Award Lecture. This lecture is delivered either as part of the online Advanced Materials Lecture Series or in one of the assemblies of the Advanced Materials Congress. The lecture is recorded and published in the Open Access Video Journal of IAAM, Video Proceedings of Advanced Materials. All the recipients of the Advanced Materials Award are authorized to use the designatory letters- “EIAAM” with their name.


The Advanced Materials Award is conferred upon highly deserving individuals who have responsibly contributed to fostering the progress and development of Materials by conducting quality research and/or formulating key policy, innovating with technology in any field, including but not limited to Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, Ocean, Atmosphere, and Planetary Sciences. This award is utilized by the association to recognize long-standing involvement and far-reaching research contribution across the world during the fifteen years preceding the year of the award. Any researcher who has been involved in research activities and has made significant contributions to Materials Science, Engineering, and Technology can be eligible of this honour. IAAM gives no weightage to factors like age, gender, race, ethnicity, background, religion, or nationality while finalizing the awardees for this coveted honour.

Selection Procedure

IAAM carries an annual review of the research conducted by individuals to the area of Materials Science, Engineering, and Technology using renowned quality scientific databases. As per the results of the peer-review process, IAAM calls upon the elite scientific contributors to file nominations for the Advanced Materials Award. IAAM’s Scientific Committee is the sole discretionary body for reviewing the nominations and shortlisting the candidates to submit their abstracts for the Advanced Materials Award Lecture to be delivered either in the Advanced Materials Congress or online in the Advanced Materials Lecture Series. The Advanced Materials Award lecture is mandatorily delivered within three months of the abstract submission. SYstem


International Association of Advanced Materials coordinates a search committee that conducts the review process for the Advanced Materials Awards from time to time. In order to arrive at the final decision regarding the award, the scientific committee considers the contributions that have been made by an individual for Advancing Materials to Global Excellence. Over the years, IAAM has honoured eminent researchers and scientists with affiliations from the best institutions of the world with this category.
