Friday 12 April 2019, SCI, London, UK
The Sir Eric Rideal Lecture honours an individual who has made a sustained and distinguished contribution to colloid and interface science in the UK and a one-day scientific meeting is organised around the winner. This year’s awardee is Professor Peter Lovell from the University of Manchester. This year’s one-day symposium will feature six invited lectures by his colleagues and collaborators to talk on both their more recent research related to polymer colloids and the newest challenges in the field. The meeting will conclude with Professor Lovell’s Rideal award lecture.
This meeting should bring together chemists, chemical engineers and physicists interested in the fundamentals of polymer colloids research, as well those interested in the preparation, analysis and application of these materials. One of the aims of the meeting is to allow young researchers and students a unique platform to get first-hand information from world-renowned scientists on topics of prime importance in colloid science.

Sir Eric Rideal Travel Bursaries
The Sir Eric Rideal Travel Bursaries are a joint bursary between the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Society of Chemical Industry. It provides funds for attendance at a conference in the field of colloid and surface science.
Sir Eric Rideal (1890-1974) was the founding Chair of the RSC Colloid and Interface Science Group.
The Rideal Trust annually offers financial assistance to promising academic research workers in the general field of colloid and surface science to attend conferences and/or to visit relevant research institutions.
Awards of up to £500 will be made on a competitive basis to assist with travel and/or subsistence and/or conference registration fees.
There are two closing dates for applications each year:
15 April (for travel planned between 1 June and 31 December)
15 October (for travel planned between 1 December and 30 June).
Please contact the SCI Awards department for further information.
