In 2020, Metrohm & the Electrochemistry Division of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (EDRACI) brought back the Metrohm Young Chemist Award as the new “Metrohm-EDRACI Young Electrochemist Award”. 

Metrohm ANZ is delighted to announce it will continue to reward outstanding young electrochemists in the Australia/New Zealand (ANZ) region. Invitations are open for the 2021 Metrohm-EDRACI Young Electrochemist Award for researchers in the Chemistry domain, preferably those using electrochemistry and spectroelectrochemistry techniques in their research. 

Submission Deadline: Monday, 4 October
Announcement: End of November 

The 2021 Awards will be expanded to reward three outstanding researchers in each category as follows:
EDRACI 470 265
PhD category 
  • $800 Award for the winner
  • $400 Award for the finalist
  • $400 Award for the finalist
Post-doctoral category (up to 5 years post PhD, with allowable extensions for approved periods of leave or part-time work)
  • $800 Award for the winner

Do not miss this opportunity to present your research work to the distinguished panel of EDRACI. This privileged platform has been designed to support and honour ongoing electrochemistry research in the region, and the great young aspiring minds behind it. 
We strongly encourage applications from researchers from diverse backgrounds and locations.

Participate now!


Abstract submission must include:

1. Research Title

2. Goal/Significance: Briefly describe the goal of your research, its significance, the experimental design, and the methods of analysis you use.

3. Contributions: Describe your contributions to the research, including any innovations that you have employed to advance the work. How challenging were the experiments or analysis, and how have you overcome these challenges?

4. Impact/Outcomes: Discuss the impact of your results. Has the work been published, patented or used in conjunction with other research? Note: If the work is highly collaborative (i.e. multiple authors on a paper), discuss the specific parts of the work that you contributed to. What are the next steps in this work? What will you or others do to advance your efforts? Are there any potential commercial outcomes of your work, now or in the future?

5. Has COVID impacted your research? If so, how?

* Please submit your abstract as either PDF or doc. format. Any other formats (e.g. PowerPoint, videos) should be stored elsewhere and be shared as a link in the submitted PDF or doc. document. 

You will be judged in the following three categories:

1. Clarity of application materials, including your ability to explain the research area and its significance.

2. Contribution to the work (e.g. experiments performed, innovations in experimental design or analysis).

3. Outcomes and impact of the work (e.g. quality of publications, patents), especially where you have contributed to advancing knowledge in the field of electrochemistry.


Finalists will present a 15 minute talk on their research at a virtual meeting at the end of 2021/beginning of 2022. 
During this meeting, the overall winner for each category will be announced.
