ECREF Looks Forward to Entries for the Gustav Eirich Award
The aim of ECREF – European Centre for Refractories gem. Gmbh (the scientific institution of the German Refractories Association) in awarding the GEA is to purposefully promote young graduates throughout the world and disseminate knowledge. Entries can still be submitted (at the ECREF website at www.ecref.eu, where further details are also available) up to the closing date of 31 May 2016. The accepted subject matters for a paper are refractory-based topics and topics dealing with studies on materials classified under the term “high-temperature materials”. Besides doctorate theses, also independent academic papers are qualified for submission for the award, if their scientific content is equivalent to a doctorate thesis, e.g. habilitation theses or other post-doctorate papers. Since concluding the studies no more than 2 years may have passed. An international jury, with jurors from Austria, France, Germany, Poland, Spain and the USA, will be evaluating the entries and selecting the 3 prize winners. EIRICH/DE funds the GEA in recognition of the fact that the EIRICH mixer has been used in the refractories industry throughout the world ever since it was invented in 1924.
