Global Award

Introducing the award

At the International Vacuum Conference (Paris, September 2013), the International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications (IUVSTA) and Elsevier have signed a new agreement to support the IUVSTA-Elsevier Student Awards. The Award is designed to give partial financial support to young postgraduate research students to attend IUVSTA meetings and conferences at which they are presenting a paper.


The Award is primarily intended for the students from developing countries who have limited support to attend scientific meetings.

Elsevier will make available funds to the selected IUVSTA conferences, so these conferences can sponsor travel arrangements for eligible students.
