The LCGC Europe/HTC-15 Innovation Award was launched to celebrate the work of scientists who are innovatively evolving the field of hyphenated techniques. The winner of the award will present their research at the HTC-15 conference, which will be held in Cardiff at the Cardiff City Hall from 24–26 January 2018. The winner will receive a plaque and a 1000 Euro travel grant award and free registration to the conference and social programme.

The winner will be selected by the HTC scientific committee who will choose the winner based on the following criteria:

  • The winner has made an innovative contribution to the field of separation science by introducing new methodologies, new instrumentation, or new techniques in the field with a strong focus on applicability.
  • Applications are open to scientist under 45 years of age.

Applications from separation scientists worldwide are welcomed. LCGC Europe readers can also nominate potential winners. Please send your nominations and reasons for your selection to Alasdair.Matheson@ubm.com by 24 November 2017.

For 2018, the HTC conference series has moved from Ghent in Belgium to Cardiff in the UK. The meeting is organized by the Royal Society of Chemistry Separation Science Group together with the Royal Flemish Chemical Society. The programme includes topics such as Big Data, Fundamentals and Exploiting Separation Science, (R)evolutions in Biopharmaceutical Analysis, Food and Drink, Environmental, Comprehensive Chromatography, and many more. The next edition of the HTC conference will be held once more in Belgium.
