Symposium X

Von Hippel Award Symposium in Honour of Prof CNR Rao FRS

(Jointly organized with MRS)

The Von Hippel Award, the Materials Research Society’s highest honor, recognizes those qualities most prized by materials scientists and engineers—brilliance and originality of intellect, combined with vision that transcends the boundaries of conventional scientific disciplines.

This symposium is organised in honour of 2017 Von Hippel Award winner Professor CNR Rao, FRS. He is the first Asian Scientist to receive this prestigious award.
