As part of its attempt to recognize the hard work of young scientists and researchers, IAAM honours and motivate the young and early career researchers working in the field of materials science and technology on a regular basis. The prestigious honor is awarded to those early career researchers who have displayed a high merit and potential to conduct excellent research in the sphere of materials science, engineering, and technology. By honouring the researchers in the most initial stage of their career, International Association of Advanced Materials hopes to motivate and inspire them for a healthy and long-lasting career.
The IAAM Young Scientist Award & Medals are meant for the researchers who have started on their path to working for the betterment of the materials world. It is awarded to individuals who have been successful to make a positive mark in the research and technology of advanced materials in their early-stage of independent research. Each and every individual around the world who has contributed with their remarkable research and is in the initial phase of his/her career can be eligible for this token of honour and potential.
International Association of Advanced Materials constitutes a dedicated awards committee. This committee looks after the shortlisting of the awardees for all the honours and awards that IAAM confers upon its delegates. In the last years, IAAM has awarded hundreds of young and upcoming researchers with this highly prestigious medal. As a result, the association has valued their contributions to the world of materials and motivated these researchers to work harder for future development. All the recipients of this valuable medal are required to deliver an IAAM award lecture at the Advanced Materials Lecture Series.
