EuroBIC MEDAL


The EuroBIC medal is awarded biannually at the occasion of the "European Biological Inorganic Chemistry Conferences" (EuroBICs). The medal will be given to a younger scientist in her/his early career, doing exciting and top-level research in the field of Bioinorganic Chemistry in a laboratory of a European country. Since 1994 (EuroBIC-2), the European Medal for Bioinorganic Chemistry, also denoted EUROBIC Medal Award, is presented in conjunction with the conference, customary as part of the closing ceremony.
