Excellence in science

Yurii Simonov

A prize of one thousand dollars will be awarded to researchers affiliated with scientific institutions in Moldova for best papers in Solid State Physics, Crystallography, and Crystal and Structural Chemistry. The award is meant to recognize the both young and seasoned researchers. 

We are happy to announce that Yurii Simonov Memorial Prize for 2015 was awarded to Dr. Sergiu Shova for his valuable contribution in crystallographic structural X-ray study of crystalline materials built-up from discrete molecular and polymeric architectures based on 3d transition metals and flexible ligands containing silane and siloxane units. His research allowed to connect the structure of those materials with their physical properties. Press release can be found here

Prize of 2017 will be open for young scientists. Qualified applicants should apply by December 31, 2016. Prizes are funded by individual contributions.
