About the Award
The Uwe D. Neue Award was created to recognize scientists that have made and continue to make significant contributions to the field of separation science, in honor of the legacy of Dr. Uwe D. Neue, late scientist and Waters® Corporate Fellow. The award will be given at the 48th International Symposium on High-Performance-Liquid-Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC 2019) held from 16-20 June 2019 in Milan, Italy. The award is sponsored by Waters Corporation.
The award will honor a distinguished industrial scientist, 15-20 years or more after receiving his or her degree, who has made a significant contribution to the field of separation science. In addition, the awardee should be an industrial scientist, and one who was instrumental in the embodiment of technology in commercial products.
The deadline for completing and submitting the nomination information packet is December 10, 2018. The nomination packet will include a CV with nominating letter by the original nominator and a supporting document by a second person. Both letters should describe an individual's impact on separation science based on presentations, publications, patent records, prior honors, and contribution to innovative products as well as impact on others who he/she has managed or trained. The packets will be valid for three consecutive years. The packet should be submitted to Martin_Gilar@waters.com.
Nominations will be considered by a group consisting of selected members of the Permanent HPLC Symposium Committee, and industrial researchers.
The award recipient will receive a commemorative plaque, a $5,000 check and travel support. He/she will have an opportunity to present a research lecture at the following HPLC Symposium. The 2019 award will be given at the 48th International Symposium on High-Performance-Liquid-Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC 2019) held from 16-20 June 2019 in Milan, Italy.
