The IFSCC has opened the competition for the Maison G. de Navarre Young Scientist Prize, an honor that allows for a young cosmetic scientist to attend an IFSCC Conference with the cost of travel, accommodation and registration fees covered by IFSCC.

The 2011 winner will be invited to attend the 2011 IFSCC Conference in Bangkok, Nov. 1-3, and IFSCC will cover the cost of travel, accommodation and registration fees up to 6000 Swiss Francs.

Any member of a society of the IFSCC, normally under the age of 35, may apply. All applicants should submit an essay of no less than 500 words on one of the following topics:

• What is the social role of cosmetics?
• Cosmetics, environmental protection and sustainable development.
• Why I would like to work in cosmetics (research, industry, education, etc.).
• What I would change in the teaching of cosmetics.

Applicants must be members of good standing in their society, which in turn must be current in its Federation subscription. In addition, applicants must submit proof that they are actively employed in a technical capacity in the cosmetics industry or related academia and that they meet relevant requirements, according to IFSCC.

Applicants are to submit electronic copies of the essay (in English) with the information requested on the entry form (available from the local Society) to by June 1. The award winner must attend the conference and accept the prize in person. More info:
