Cologne, Germany -- The 2013 Tire Technology Conference, to be held in Cologne, Germany, will play host to the inaugural 'Young Scientist Prize'.
The award is aiming to reward and encourage young scientists and engineers within the tyre industry. The prize will be independently judged and awarded by an established scientist from within the industry.
The award is available on a worldwide basis to any person involved in the research of tyres and their performance, tyre materials, tyre engineering and mathematics, and tyre production, independent of whether they are in university, a research institute or in industry based research.
Candidates, from either university or industry, will be expected to give a presentation that will then be evaluated by the independent judge. The successful entrant will be awarded Â£1000 (Euro 1277) as well as a prestigious trophy.
The presentation will be judged on the quality of the research work presented, measured against the potential value in terms of further development and practical application. The clarity of the logic, the clearness of the presentation and the degree to which the young scientist is seen to have been responsible for the work will also be taken into account. Additionally the manner with which questions are answered at interview and/or after their presentation in the conference will also be taken into account.
The only stipulation is that entrants for the award should be 28 years or younger on the first day of the Conference, 5 Feb 2013.
The Tire Technology conference and expo takes place 5-7 Feb 2013 in KÃ¶ln Messe, Cologne, Germany.
