FEICA, the Association of the European Adhesive and Sealant Industry, has launched the second Award for Innovative Adhesion Science. The joint EURADH (European adhesion societies) and FEICA Award for Innovative Adhesion Science aspires to stimulate the interactions between industrial and scientific activities. Applications are invited from young researchers working in adhesion science who have published outstanding work.

“FEICA continues to support the adhesives and sealants industry by encouraging further innovations in our exciting sector,” said Philip Bruce, FEICA’s secretary general. “Our industry makes a multitude of everyday products possible and therefore offers stimulating careers. It is also proving to be of great importance to our increasingly circular economy, which many of last year’s entries demonstrated.”

The EURADH adhesion societies consist of Associação Portuguesa de Adesão e Adesivos (Portugal), Grupo Espanol de Adhesion y Adhesivos  (Spain), DECHEMA (Germany), Société Française du Vide (France), Society for Adhesion and Adhesives (UK), and De bond voor materialenkennis (The Netherlands). The award is funded by FEICA and will presented at the EURADH biannual conference.
