At the forty-seventh Congress of the Inorganic Chemistry Division of the Italian Chemical Society (SCI), held in Bari from the 9th to the 12th September 2019, the president Francesco Paolo Fanizzi delivered a special plate of acknowledgment to Dr Carlo Mealli for its continuous activity in the community of the Italian inorganic chemists.

Dr. Mealli was "Dirigente di Ricerca" at the CNR-ICCOM Institute till the year 2011, when he retired after forty consecutive years of activity. Since then, he continued his passionate work as an Associate Researcher of the Institute with the attainment of new scientific results of international impact in the field of structural and theoretical chemistry. In particular, by working in symbiosis with some still in career researchers, various frontier aspects of the chemical bonding and reactivity were tackled and understood, also allowing the collaborators to reach a higher degree of maturity.

The Institute of Applied Sciences and Technology of the National Autonomous University of Mexico and the CIS XLI-L LAMLIBS Local Organizing Committee awarded Dr. Vincenzo Palleschi, ICCOM-CNR Senior Researcher, the LIBS Award 2019 for his outstanding scientific contribution and his commitment to the education and dissemination of the LIBS (Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) spectroscopy technique. The Prize was awarded during the Colloquium Spectroscopicum Internationale XLI (CSIXLI) and first Latin-American Meeting on Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LAMLIBS), which was held in Mexico City from 9 to 14 June 2019.


Dr. Alessandro Mordini, ICCOM-CNR Research Director, was elected Coordinator of the Interdivisional Group of Chemistry for Renewable Energies (EnerCHEM) of the Italian Chemical Society. The group, which has over 250 members, has as its objective the coordination and promotion on an interdisciplinary level of interactions between the Members of the Italian Chemical Society who carry out research or have an interest in the fields of systems and materials for collection, accumulation, conversion  and use of renewable energy.

Dr. Gianna Reginato, ICCOM-CNR Senior Researcher,was elected Coordinator of the Interdivisional Group of Organometallic Chemistry (GICO) of the Italian Chemical Society. The group, which has over 200 members, aims to bring together researchers working in the organic and inorganic field, which carry out research focused on the preparation, study of properties, structure and reactivity of organometallic derivatives.

Dr. Carmen Moreno-Marrodan, ICCOM-CNR Researcher, received the MSCA 2019 Award in the "Sharing Excellence" category.

The Prize, part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Presidency Conference (MSCA) Program, is awarded to former Marie Curie fellows who illustrated how their projects could be exploited to share the benefits of research throughout the European Union.

The award ceremony took place during the "Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions to foster scientific excellence" meeting held in Bucharest (Romania), 4-5/6/2019.

Dr. Antonella Guerriero, ICCOM-CNR Researcher, received the Young Investigator Award (YIA) 2018 in the "Green Chemistry" section.

The award, established by the Department of Chemical Sciences and Technology of Materials (DSCTM) of the CNR, is awarded annually to young researchers who have distinguished themselves in the fields of Green Chemistry, Renewable Energy, Health, Advanced Materials, Computational Modeling and Cultural Heritage.

The award ceremony took place during the DSCTM-CNR 2018 Conference, held in Assisi (PG) on days 24-26 / 9/2018.
