Entries open for this year’s Ian McCrae Award

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 their links with air quality. In his honour, the IAQM will present the Ian McCrae Award to an IAQM Associate or Member in the early stages of their career (approximately the first ten years) for the best essay submission to the question below.

The winner will be presented with a trophy at this year’s Routes to Clean Air conference on 27th September and will be featured on a dedicated IAQM and IES news story. 


Submit an essay (maximum 650 words) on the following topic:

To what extent could a higher frequency of heatwaves affect ambient air quality in the UK – particularly in urban areas – as a result of climate change?

Judges will be looking for well written and argued submissions; there is no right or wrong answer. The winner will ideally be available to attend Routes to Clean Air on the 27th September in London.

Are you are an IAQM Associate or Full member in the first 10 years of your career? Then enter for your chance to win this prestigious title and a ticket to this year’s Routes to Clean Air.


Submit your entry via email to Ethny Childs by 10am on Friday 10th September.

Good luck!
