The award recognises the most innovative research papers on polyolefins, olefins or melamine for master’s and doctorate degree students. The winners were presented with an award, certificate and monetary prize at Borealis’ annual Innovation Day on January 20 in Porvoo, Finland.

The 2010 winner of the Borealis Student Innovation Award for the best doctoral graduate thesis is Dr. Vassileios Touloupides for his research on “Mathematical Modeling and Simulation of an Industrial a-Olefins Catalytic Slurry Loop Reactor Series.” Dr. Touloupides is a Greek citizen who graduated from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2005 with a degree in Chemical Engineering. He continued his studies as a PhD candidate and is currently attending medical school also at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Dr. Touloupides’ findings were published in Computer Aided Chemical Engineering and submitted to Molecules. He received a monetary award of EUR 5,000.

At the master’s degree level, Jukka Rasanen was awarded the Borealis Student Innovation Award for his master thesis “Optimisation of the Recovery Section of a Polyolefin Catalyst Manufacturing Process.” Mr. Rasanen is a Finnish citizen and graduated from Lappeenranta University of Technology in Lappeenranta, Finland with a BSc degree in Chemical Engineering. He continued his studies at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden in the area of Innovative and Sustainable Chemical Engineering under the supervision of Professor L. Vamling (Chalmers), K. Nyfors (Borealis) and M. Lylykangas (Borealis). His findings led to one patent application in the area of catalyst production technology. Mr. Rasanen received a monetary award of EUR 3,000 for his research.

“We at Borealis support the development of new talent and thought processes by offering the Borealis Student Innovation Award, ” says Alfred Stern, Borealis Senior Vice President Innovation & Technology. “Dr. Touloupides’ research clearly aligns with our “Value Creation through Innovation” path. The high quality and detail of all submitted theses ensures a bright future in the world of plastics.”

Open Call for Borealis Student Innovation Award 2011 Applicants
At this time Borealis would also like to invite students from around the world to apply for the 2011 Borealis Student Innovation Award. Two awards will be given, one for a master’s degree graduate and one for a doctorate degree graduate. Each winner will receive an award and certificate as well as a monetary award (EUR 5,000 for doctoral degree and EUR 3,000 for master’s degree graduates).

“The jury already anticipates reviewing the theses of the 2011 applicants. It is truly invigorating to be active in the latest generation of researchers, ” states Norbert Reichelt, Manager Strategic Projects InnoTech & External Cooperation. “The innovation award is open to students worldwide and continues to grow in popularity and prestige each year.”

Applicants can choose one of five research areas. To apply, students must submit an application containing three parts: abstract of maximum two pages on the thesis topic, short assessment of the thesis from an advisor/professor and curriculum vitae (CV) maximum two pages.

The Borealis Student Innovation Award was introduced in 2008. It has since been offered annually based on the success and enthusiasm received.
