The E-MRS Award program strives to acknowledge outstanding contributors to the progress of materials research, and to recognize their exciting and profound accomplishments.
We seek to honor those whose work has already had a major impact in the field, and those young researchers whose work already leads to great expectations for future leadership.
Graduate Student Award
E-MRS Graduate Student Awards are intended to honor and encourage graduate students whose academic achievements and current materials research display a high level of excellence and distinction. E-MRS seeks to recognize students of exceptional ability who show promise for significant future achievement in materials research.
Awards are presented at the Plenary Session during the week of the Spring meeting. The prizes consist of a 450 EUR cash prize accompanied with a diploma.

Professor Jan Czochralski is one of the most famous Polish scientists. One of his most important discoveries was the technology for growing single crystals, now known as the Czochraski Method. It was discovered in 1916 when he found that after dipping a pen into a small crucible of molten aluminium and withdrawing it, a thread of aluminium hangs from the nib. Careful investigations had shown that this was a single crystal and so the Czochralski Method for single crystal growth was born. The method is used for example for the growth of the single crystals of Germanium and Silicon which are the basis of a vast range of modern electronic equipment and devices.
Taking into account the merits of Czochralski for materials science, technology transfer to industry, and international colaboration, E-MRS established an award in the name of Jan Czochralski.
To date the following recipients have been honoured:
- Professor Dr Walter HEYWANG, formerly Director of Research of Siemens,
- Professor Dr Boris PATON, the long term President of the Ukraine National Academy of Science,
- Prof. Thaddeus B. MASSALSKI from Carnegie Mellon University,
