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 CPACT university/institute or member company in recognition of that researchers achievement in process analytics and control technologies. The prize will seek to recognise an individual’s excellence in terms of academic achievement, creative thinking or engagement between academia and industry. The value of the prize will be £1,000.
The representatives of the CPACT universities and member companies are now invited to nominate candidates for the 2020 award following the attached guidelines.
