Adhesion Innovation Award

FEICA, the association representing the European adhesive and sealant industry, and EURADH, the biannual European conference on adhesion and related phenomena, are delighted to announce the inauguration of a new joint award for adhesion science. The Award for Innovative Adhesion Science aims to stimulate the interactions between industrial and scientific activities in adhesion science. The award is funded by FEICA and presented at the EURADH conferences.

Applications are invited from young researchers working in adhesion science in Europe who have published outstanding work. This includes masters students, doctoral students, post-docs, junior professors and researchers associated with universities, research institutes or companies. The scope and possible topics are identical to those of the call for papers for EURADH 2018.

The Award Winner

A prize of €3,000 and a certificate will be awarded to the winner at EURADH. In addition, the participation fee for the EURADH and FEICA conferences will be waived and travel costs for the winner and, if applicable, his or her supervisor, will be refunded (to a max. of € 2,000).


Applications for the 2018 Adhesion Innovation Award are now closed.
