British Zeolite Association

The British Zeolite Association promotes zeolite and ordered nanoporous materials science in the UK. It does this through its annual research conference, which brings academic and industrial scientists together to discuss the latest developments in the field, as well as by its support for research students, its summer research bursaries for under-graduate students and other educational programmes and the Founders' Award, an annual prize for the best PhD student working in the area of micro- or mesoporous scienceand the Barrer Award, which is awarded every three years for the meritorious recent pure or applied work in the field of porous inorganic materials.
