Samuel Geijsbeek PACRIM International Award

Award presentation:  The Geijsbeek award will be presented at PACRIM 2019. Submit nominations by October 15, 2018.

The Samuel Geijsbeek PACRIM International Award honors Samuel Geijsbeek, one of the founders of The American Ceramic Society, who died in 1943. He produced the first whiteware set west of the Mississippi, manufactured the first terracotta in the Pacific Northwest (1907), and helped found the ACerS Pacific Northwest Section.

The award was changed in 2016 to recognise individuals who are members of the Pacific Rim Conference (PACRIM) societies, for their contributions in the field of ceramics and glass technology that have resulted in significant industrial and/or academic impact, international advocacy, and visibility of the field.

Industrial candidates will be evaluated based on the technology development and commercialisation, and the development’s current usefulness and importance, its uniqueness, and its economic significance.

The next Samuel Geijsbeek PACRIM International Award will be presented at PacRim13, Okinawa Convention Center, Japan October 27-November 1, 2019. The deadline for nominations is October 15, 2018.
