This year the Natta’s Lecture Award was conferred to Prof. Nicholas Peppas from the University of Texas at Austin.
Natta’s Lecture is an award that the Department of Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering of Politecnico di Milano assigns every year to an eminent Professor, who has distinguished himself in the world for his original studies and researches, and has reached outstanding achievements in the main areas of interest for the Department.
This award was first established in 2013 to celebrate the 50ths of the Nobel prize to Giulio Natta. It implies a Lectio Magistralis at the beginning of our academic year and the assignment of a medal.
The first recipient of the award was Prof. Gregory Stephanopoulos from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
