The 2018 Italy Made Me awards for young Italian researchers in the UK

The prizegiving ceremony for the fourth edition of the Italy Made Me awards was held yesterday evening at the Embassy of Italy to the United Kingdom. The prizes are awarded in recognition of the work of young UK-based Italian researchers who completed at least part of their studies in Italy. The initiative is run by the embassy and is supported by Niccolò Cusano University, the cultural association Il Circolo and Consulcesi Group and Farmaco Italiano.

The selection panel was headed by Professor Carla Molteni and was made up of members of the Association of Italian Scientists in the UK (AISUK) and the Italian Medical Society of Great Britain (IMSOGB). During the ceremony, Professor Antonio Guarino, the head of AISUK, explained how the panel had selected the winning projects, which were divided into three categories: Life Sciences, Engineering Sciences and Social Sciences & Humanities.

The prizes were presented by the ambassador, Raffaele Trombetta, who congratulated the winners and explained that the Italy Made Me awards celebrate and support the outstanding work carried out by Italian researchers working in British science and academia, who are able to take advantage of experience acquired in both countries.
