Each submitted application was evaluated by the MRM Prizes and Awards Committee.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the 2 Awardees:

Ms. Emily Buck

Ms. Korin Sahinyan


  • Emilly Buck, M.Sc, Ph.D. Candidate in Prof. Marta Cerruti’s Lab (Mining and Materials Engineering)

We would like to congratulate all the winners and participants in this competition and to extend the warmest thanks to the members of the Prizes & Awards Committee for their evaluation of all the applications.

This competition would not be possible without the generosity of Mme. Lucie Besner, patron sponsor of the Travel Awards.

If you are planning to present your work at a scientific meeting between February and July 2021, stay tuned for the upcoming Lucie Besner Travel Awards Competition  (opening in early January).
