Seventh Erwin Felix Lewy Bertaut Prize (ECA-ENSA) awarded to Dr Giorgio Schiro

The Seventh Erwin Felix Lewy Bertaut Prize of the European Crystallographic Association (ECA) and European Neutron Scattering Association (ENSA) is awarded to Dr Giorgio Schiro from the Institut de Biologie Structurale of the CNRS -Grenoble, France. Dr Giorgio Schiro is recognised for his scientific contribution at the highest level, excellent results, challenging experiments, and high impact publications in the innovative science field of protein dynamics.

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]

GIG1 photo competition winner

This photo was the winner of a competition that the European Young Crystallographers ran with sponsorship from Rigaku to celebrate IYCr. The competition was to provide an original photograph that expressed the entrants work in crystallography, and this entry was chosen as the best example. The winner was Eleonora Conterosito from UNIPMN, and she won an iPad that Rigaku provided.

ECA Individual travel grant for students participating in the ECM meetings

The European Crystallographic Association will distribute travel grants among the particpating students, to encourage the participation of a large diversity of young researchers. [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.
