The Selection Committee of the International Union of Leather Technologists and Chemists Societies  (IULTCS) Research Commission (IUR) is pleased to announce the recipients of the Young Leather Scientist Grants.

The awards are in the form of the basic grant and an award for sustainability and environmental protection – and this is the first time there has been two awards provided.

The monetary grants help support the work of young talented individuals in the leather sector and the IULTCS gratefully acknowledges sponsorship by the Lear Corporation and TFL.

Dr Michael Meyer, the IUR Chair, stated on this fifth year of the Young Leather Scientist Grant: “This year we have received around fifteen innovative research topics. The overall quality of the applications has been at a high level and the decision was not easy”.
