Overview:

The award is intended as a travel grant for students and early career researchers with up to ten years postdoctoral experience to attend an important international meeting for the advancement of fullerene and related science such as the functionalisation of carbon materials including carbon nanotubes and graphene.

The Roger Taylor Award is generously funded by the Taylor family as an endowment to the British Carbon Group and it is intended to make one award per year with a bursary of £750. The applicant must state which conference they wish to attend.

The Award is international and consequently is open to scientists living and working in any country and of any nationality, with one exception which is that anyone living or working, at the time of the conference, in the country where the conference is held, is not eligible.

Self-nomination is not permitted. The Award Committee of the British Carbon Group will determine the successful applicant.

Eligibility:

  • The Award is international and consequently is open to scientists living and working in any country and of any nationality.
