Nordic Rheology Society

Rheology is defined as the science of the deformation and flow of matter, which means that rheology in some form enters almost every study of material properties. In the Nordic countries, rheological measurements have become standard techniques in both industrial and academic research. The Nordic Rheology Society has been formed as a meeting ground for engineers, physicists, chemists and biologists engaged in rheology in industry and academia.

Jan Vermant is a leading scientist in colloid and interfacial dynamics. His work includes important findings on dispersion rheology and he is recognized for his innovative and foundational contributions to interfacial rheology. Similar to the symbolics of the plant depicted in the award statue, he inspires students and colleagues to grow and develop. In the photo ESR President Peter Fischer (left) hands over the delicate statue to Jan Vermant (center), overseen by Gerald Fuller (right). Read more about the award and his work on the ESR web and on his research group's page.

The Weissenberg award is the finest rheology award in Europe. It is handed out every year of the Annual European Rheology Conference. Nominations by ESR members are handled by the Award Committee and the awardee receives the award statue at the AERC.

The award statue is designed by the Swedish designer Maria Olofsson in glass to capture the feeling of a frozen flow. The interior drop of blue glass represents the source of knowledge. The climbing plant and the leaves shows the symbolizes the strive for new knowledge and the persistence of the awardee. Finally, the gold color symbolizes victory and glory.
