2018 Charles Hatchett Award Winners

Celebrating its 40th year, the Charles Hatchett Award recognises excellent research in the science and technology of niobium and its alloys. Beta has been managing the Award on behalf of CBMM since its inception.

The 2018 Award explores new niobium containing materials for the enhanced performance of batteries, an area in which there will be significant growth in the near future.

The selection process of the Charles Hatchett Award is concerned with technical excellence and originality, but also takes account the social, economic and environmental advantages of any proposed application of niobium. The International Panel for the Charles Hatchett Award commented, “The research is remarkable because of academic and commercial interest in the smart revolution era. The development of new materials with enhanced performance could give a significant impact on the market.”
