Titanium prize

The Harvey Flower Titanium Prize has been established by the Titanium Information Group (TIG) and is co-sponsored by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining. It is dedicated to the memory of Professor Harvey Flower of Imperial College, London, whose outstanding contributions to the science and technology of titanium have led to a clearer and more full understanding of the metal and its alloys and to their wider application in all fields of engineering. The prize is awarded to individual students, graduates or practising materials engineers, or a team for outstanding work in the field of titanium and its alloys. The award may be made for development of a significant application or technical innovation such as: an improved understanding of titanium metallurgy or alloy development; a new application for titanium or titanium alloys; a significant extension of the use of titanium; enhancement of the performance of titanium in an existing application; innovation or improvement in production, processing or use. The award, a cash prize of GBP 500, plus an inscribed medallion and a framed citation, will be decided by four judges, two from the Titanium Information Group, two from the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining. Wide publicity will be given to the award and the recipient. The content of the entry may also be publicised unless confidentiality is requested at the time of submission. Individual entries should be submitted by a third party sponsor who is familiar with the work of the individual, and team entries can be submitted in that way or directly from the team. Entries should be supported by sufficient written information to allow the judges to come to a decision. Entries may be submitted at any time up to the end of December of the award year. Judging will be completed early in the following year and the award will be presented in June/July of that year. Entries should be sent in duplicate to: Carolyn Figgett, Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, 1 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5DB, UK.
