Brian Kelly Award

Established 1996

This annual award from the British Carbon Group was established in 1996 in memory of Brian Kelly, an authority on graphite physics. Brian worked with the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) and its successor company, AEA Technology plc for most of his career before ending with an all-too-brief period as Visiting Professor at Bath University School of Materials. The fund which provides this award was established by his friends and colleagues following his untimely death.

The award in the form of a travel grant is given to students or young researchers to attend the International Carbon Conference.

Award Information

Award History

The Beilby Medal and Prize was established in 1930 in honour of Sir George Beilby. Sir Beilby's long and remarkable career as scientist and industrialist was marked by an enduring interest in the twin concerns of fuel economy and smoke abatement. His dedication and energetic research had great significance for the fuel and metal industries, and produced far-reaching advantages for society. He was SCI World President in 1898 and contributed greatly to SCI's growth in Scotland. A Beilby Memorial Fund to reward exceptional research was raised in his honour by subscription.
