The Milan Polymer Days organizing committee is committed to highlight outstanding individual performance for scientific works by students or early career scientists by promoting awards dedicated to specific categories of young scientists.
The best poster communication prize is awarded annually to Ph.D. students and post-doc who have completed their doctoral studies within the last 4 years, and who present a poster communication at the Milan Polymer Days annual meeting.
The Mario Malinconico prize is awarded annually to Italian graduate students who have defended a master’s thesis in the field of polymers. The winners are invited to present their research work in front of the audience at the Milan Polymer Days annual meeting.
These competitions represent an exciting opportunity for young researchers to present their projects to a wide international audience and to interact with them. Being involved at this level may represent an important step in their professional growth, by helping to improve their communication skills and create a professional network.
