Malcolm McIvor was one of the key people in ICI who
helped establish CPACT in 1997 and he played a prominent role in PhD
supervision during the early stages of CPACT’s activities.
Malcolm enjoyed his engagement with CPACT and has
generously endowed a prize that he wishes to be awarded annually to a
postgraduate student or early career researcher (within 3 years of a PhD) at a

creative thinking or engagement between academia and industry. The
value of the prize will be £1,000.
