The Maschinenfabrik Gustav Eirich Co., Hardheim, Germany, and the European Center for Refractories (ECRef) of Hohr-Grenzhausen, Germany, seek nominees for the Gustav Eirich Award. The award is designed to promote the excellence of young academics and support innovative ideas in the refractories industry.

The Eirich Award will be presented to three candidates based on the discussion of environmental aspects, energy and other resources; the potential for significant impacts in the industry; design and modeling for practical application; and the processing aspects of the development. Awards will be presented at the Annual International Colloquium on Refractories in Aachen, Germany, on October 19-20, and the winners will present their papers as an invited lecturer at the meeting.

The main topics to be considered for the awards are the refractory-based topics of raw materials, materials and components; application technologies; and topics concerning the study of materials under the terms of “high-temperature materials” or “the modern refractory.”

The awards will be offered for dissertations and/or independent research work with scientific content. The scientific content can be related to doctorates or post-doctoral work. The work should have been completed no more than two years ago.

Abstracts must be submitted by May 31. For more information, call (49) 2624-9473171 or visit www.eirich-award.eu.
