“Giulio Natta” Award

Prof. Paolo Galli

Reasons
Paolo Galli has contributed in an outstanding way to the development of polyolefins applied and used in many fields for the benefit of a better life. Further this proposal is fully in line with the five guidelines to be followed for granting this award. After Prof. Corradini being honoured for the evaluation of the solid state structure of polyolefins in 2003, and Prof. Brintzinger for the discovery of new catalysts to synthesise polyolefins, especially polypropylene, now Prof. Galli is proposed to be honoured for the development of high mileage catalysts and their industrial application in advanced technologies to generate polyolefin materials for a broad range of application. With Paolo Galli we are also honour ... continua >>

“Nicolò Copernico” for Biomedical Sciences

Dott. Francesco Lupidi

Reasons
The scientific project proposed by Dr. Francesco Lupidi is very good, written with care and in addition it contains many details. The project reveals a great effort by the presenter; indeed the proposal is full of culture and of general and specific knowledge. Therefore, it shows a wide competence of the author. Thus, the competence is a warranty to give the Copernico Award to this project.
This judgment derives from the observation that, other than a detailed presentation of every single experimental phase, the project describes also a specific section of the expected results and of possible clinical applications. These sections of the project enrich and complete the propo ... continua >>
