At the end of January, Quadrant AG, Zurich, Switzerland, conferred their international Quadrant Award for the fourth time. The international invitation to submit entries for the award was addressed to graduates who had written a doctoral thesis in the field of "Materials and processes related to engineering and high-performance plastics and composites" between October 1, 2008, and September 30, 2010.

This scientific award with a first prize of EUR 15,000 was won by the Japanese researcher Dr. Tadashi Kajiya, who wrote his thesis "Dynamics of the Drying Process of Polymer Solution Droplets" at The University of Tokyo, Japan. The second prize of EUR 7,000 was awarded for the thesis entitled "Metal Nanoparticle Based Composite Materials" by Dr. Norman Lüchinger, from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich), Switzerland.

The third prize of EUR 3,000 went to Dr. Michelle Seitz, Northwestern University, USA, for her thesis "Triblock Copolymer Gels – Structure, Fracture Behavior and Application in Ceramic Processing".

The six members of the academic jury were Prof. Dr. Volker Altstädt, Prof. Dr. Glenn H. Frederickson, Prof. Dr. Martin Gruebele, Prof. Dr. Jan-Anders Manson, Prof. Dr. Toshio Nishi and Prof. Dr. Ingaas Verpoest.

The number of international entries received was very encouraging (43 in total), and especially also the quality of the papers submitted. The launch of the international Quadrant Award is intended to foster talent worldwide and facilitate access to industry for plastics scientists and engineers after completion of their academic training. Quadrant also aims to make a contribution in building a bridge between industry and academia. The next Quadrant Award is planned to be conferred in 2013.
