Young Chemists can now Apply for the ‘Metrohm Young Chemist Award’

‘Metrohm Young Chemist Award’


In 2018, Metrohm AG will celebrate their 75 anniversary. To mark the occasion, young chemists can now submit their research in a competition that will award cash prizes to the winners as well as an invitation to the company’s headquarters in Switzerland to present their work there.

On 1st April 2018, it will be 75 years since Metrohm was founded in Herisau, Switzerland by the engineer Bertold Suhner. What started as small workshop on the premises of an old textile mill has steadily grown to become the world’s number one maker of instruments for wet chemical analysis. Since the company’s foundation in 1943, Metrohm has remained independent and firmly committed to benefitting customers with superior Swiss quality and outstanding support. Metrohm is owned by the non-profit Metrohm Foundation established in 1982 by Bertold Suhner and his fellow owners of Metrohm AG, Hans Winzeler and Lorenz Kuhn, to safeguard the independent future and spirit of his company.

With the Metrohm Young Chemist Award, Metrohm wants to appreciate young scientists around the world and the contribution they are making with their work to improve scientific development. The Metrohm Young Chemist Award is open to undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate or PhD students. Detailed information about the conditions of participation applying in each country is available on
