Congratulations to Prof. Ferrari, who has been announced as the recipient of the NANOSMAT Award 2017 for "outstanding" contributions to nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Prof. Andrea Ferrari, Director of the Cambridge Graphene Centre, has been awarded the NANOSMAT Award 2017. The award recognises exceptional scientific achievements, professional leadership, originality and innovation in research and development relating to nanoscience and nanotechnology

The NANOSMAT Award is an international prize awarded annually since 2014 to international scientists who have shown outstanding achievements in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology during the course of their professional career. The awards committee were very impressed by Prof. Ferrari's research exploiting different frontiers stretching from materials science to engineering and physics with novel and stimulating results.

The prize will be awarded at the 12th NANOSMAT Conference, to be held at the Pierre and Marie University, Paris, France between 11-13 September 2017. Prof. Ferrari will deliver the NANOSMAT Award lecture at the meeting.
