Nominations invited for new titanium prize

The Harvey Flower Titanium Prize, established by the Titanium Information Group (TIG) and co-sponsored by the Institute, is dedicated to the memory of Professor Harvey Flower of Imperial College, London, whose outstanding contributions to the science and technology of titanium has led to a clearer and fuller understanding of the metal and its alloys.

The prize is awarded to individual students, graduates or practising materials engineers, or a team for outstanding work in the field of titanium and its alloys.

The award may be made for the development of a significant application or technical innovation such as:
  • an improved understanding of titanium metallurgy or alloy development
  • a new application for titanium or titanium alloys
  • a significant extension of the use of titanium
  • enhancement of the performance of titanium in an existing application
  • innovation or improvement in production, processing or use.
The award, a cash prize of £500, plus an inscribed medallion and a framed citation, will be decided by four judges, two from TIG and two from the Institute. Individual entries should be submitted by a third party sponsor who is familiar with the work of the individual. Team entries can also be submitted in the same way or directly by the team. Entries should be supported by sufficient written information to allow the judges to come to a decision. Entries for the 2004 Harvey Flower Titanium Prize should be submitted by 31 December 2004. Judging will take place in early 2005, with the prize beginning presented in June/July.

Entries should be sent (in duplicate as hard copies) to Carolyn Figgett, Harvey Flower Titanium Prize, The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, 1 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5DB, Email
