Oeiras, 06.03.2014

The Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ) announced that Carlos C. Romão, full professor and head of the Organometallic Chemistry Lab at ITQB, has been awarded the Alberto Romão Dias Prize from SPQ. The award ceremony will take place during the 10th Inorganic Chemistry Conference to take place in April.

The Alberto Romão Dias Prize, now in its second edition, was created by SPQ to recognize a chemist, who by his scientific action and leadership has decisively contributed to the advancement of inorganic and organometallic chemistry in Portugal. The name of Carlos Crispim Romão was proposed by a group of professors and researchers in the area and approved unanimously by the jury composed by Maria José Calhorda (President of SPQ and former awardee), António Jorge Parola (President of the Inorganic Chemistry Division at SPQ), Ana Margarida Martins, João da Costa Pessoa and Rita Delgado.

ITQB Director, Cláudio M. Soares, joins the Portuguese chemists in congratulating Carlos C. Romão. “We are very happy for this formal recognition; Professor Carlos Romão is indeed a great scientist and we consider him an important figure in the development of ITQB”, he said. The awardee himself was surprised but delighted with this nomination I really enjoy this Prize, which I would like to share with all the co-workers and friends who made it possible". Now working as a retired professor, Carlos C. Romão has no intention of leaving the bench but plans to dedicate more of his time to science outreach, something that those who know him agree he is great at.
