Entries for the Ian McCrae Award are now open!

Posted on June 8th, 2017

Dr Ian McCrae was a very well respected and widely liked air quality practitioner who worked for TRL. He made significant contributions to the understanding of emissions from transport and links with air quality. Tragically he died suddenly in February 2010 aged 46.

The annual Ian McCrae award is presented to an IAQM Associate Member or Full Member who has demonstrated a commitment to the air quality profession.

This year we wish to give the Award to an Associate or Member in the early stages of their career (approximately the first five years). The winner will be given free entry to the Routes to Clean Air Conference, being held on 24th and 25th October in Birmingham, where the winner will be presented with a trophy.

How to Enter
Please submit an essay (maximum 650 words) on the following topic:

What do you think the main UK air quality issues will be in 2030?

The judges will be looking for well written and argued submissions that explain your reasoning for the future scenarios and pollutant (or pollutants) you have put forward. There is no right or wrong answer.

Deadline
Entries must be submitted via email by 5pm on Monday 18 September 2017.
