Max Perutz Prize awarded to Professor John R. Helliwell

The 8th Max Perutz Prize of the European Crystallographic Association has been awarded to Professor John R. Helliwell, Emeritus Professor of Chemistry, University of Manchester, United Kingdom for his long, generous and fruitful dedication to developing all aspects of the use of synchrotron radiation for crystallography and for his boosting support to global development of synchrotron and neutron facilities. In addition to his pioneering achievements and to the key role that he played in the development of experimental beamlines for structural biology worldwide, he also has been constantly engaged in outreach and dissemination of crystallography to the scientific community. John Helliwell will receive the award at the 29th European Crystallographic Meeting in Rovinj (Croatia), 23-28 August 2015. [More Information]

Seventh Erwin Felix Lewy Bertaut Prize of the European Crystallography Association and European Neutron Scattering Association (ECA-ENSA)

The European Crystallographic Association (ECA) and the European Neutron Scattering Association (ENSA) announce the call for nominations for the Seventh Erwin Felix Lewy Bertaut Prize in honour of the late Erwin Felix Lewy Bertaut, and in memory of his scientific achievements and cornerstones in crystallography and in neutron scattering.Read more...

Second European Crystallography School (Mieres (Asturias) , Spain — Monday 31st August to Saturday 5th September 2015)

The European Crystallographic Association (ECA) and the University of Oviedo invite the world-wide crystallographic community (and all scientists and students working in any related field) to an intensive session of working together and learning crystallography from each other.

With help from our sponsors, we have achieved a registration cost of 570 euros (young academic, including accommodation and meals). We expect to have student bursaries available to reduce the cost further for a limited number of attendees. The number of attendees is limited to 90 students.

The application deadline is March 31st, 2015.
