To celebrate its centenary, the Salters’ Institute has set up an award scheme for chemists and chemical engineers starting their careers in industry.

The Salters’ Institute¬†plays a major role in the support of chemistry teaching, the encouragement of young people to pursue careers in the UK chemical industries, and the promotion of chemical education including the whole area of curriculum development.

The purpose of their Centenary Awards is to recognise and support individuals who are starting out in their career and who have the potential to make an outstanding long-term contribution to industries that use chemistry and chemical engineering.

The Awards will be an important part of the Institute’s programme of activities in support of its mission to promote the practical applications of chemistry at all levels.  Award holders will be asked to participate in the Institute’s educational activities and events with other Salters’ Centenary and Graduate Award holders.
