Sharma Medal

The Sharma Medal, launched in 2014, recognises sustained outstanding research contributions in chemical engineering across an individual’s career.

The medal is presented to an individual who has, across their career, made a significant contribution to the field of chemical engineering research. The judging committee will consider: originality and impact of research, innovation, professional standing, and other indicators of esteem indicated by the nominee/nominator.

From 2018, following a kind donation from Dr A V Rama Rao (Founder, Avra Ltd) and Professor J B Joshi (ICT Mumbai) in support of the Sharma medal, the winner will also receive an award of £1000.

Nominations will be considered by IChemE’s Medals and Prizes Committee.
