On June 23, five students of the HRSMC Class of Excellence have defended their research proposal for a jury of HRSMC staff members and two members of the external advisory committee of the HRSMC. The research proposal is an obligatory part of the HRSMC Class of Excellence, a programme for excellent chemistry master students.
Although the jury explicitly remarked that all students had done an excellent job, they voted Melania Kozdra as the winner of the pitch contest. The jury was very much impressed by her pitch and the subsequent discussion with the jury members, and therefore decided to award her with the HRSMC Class of Excellence Pitch Prize.
The prize consists of €1500,‐ (for a contribution) to attend a conference or course/training. This conference or course/training needs to take place within one year after graduation and needs to be approved by the HRSMC.
