Head of Development at Analytik Jena receives award for services to science
Dr. Gerhard Schlemmer receives the 2007 "Dr Fijalkowski Prize"
Its members organise a scientific meeting every two years at which the prize is awarded for outstanding services to science in the field of spectroscopy. The prize is awarded on each occasion to both a Polish scientist and a scientist outside Poland.
The prize awarded bears t! he name of Dr Jerzy Fijalkowski, who reformed the society after the Second World War, and who was particularly deserving of recognition for building up the reputation of spectroscopy and environmental analysis in Poland. Fijalkowski was Professor of Analytics at the University of Warsaw. Amongst many other meetings, he also organised a CANAS in Torun (Poland) and provided the scientific leadership for the latter.
The prize was also awarded to the Polish scientist Professor Adam Hulanicki in recognition of his life’s work in spectroscopy. Mr Hulanicki is Professor Emeritus at the University of Warsaw. He too held a chair in analytical chemistry. Professor Hulanicki represents the Polish scientific community on numerous international bodies, including the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna.
