CESIO Lifetime Award for Dr Föller
At the closing ceremony of the 12th CESIO World Surfactant Congress in Rome, Dr. Föller, who has been instrumental in shaping the content and organisation of the CESIO Congress for many years, was presented with the CESIO Lifetime Award.
In his laudatory speech, CESIO President Tony Gough (Innospec) highlighted Dr Föller’s extensive knowledge of surfactants from a technical, commercial and regulatory perspective.
On the CESIO Executive Committee, he represented TEGEWA’s interests as a national association. The list of CESIO congresses in which he participated in the organising and programme committees is impressive: Florence 2000, Berlin 2004, Paris 2008, Vienna 2011, Barcelona 2013, Istanbul 2015, Munich 2019. This year’s congress in Rome was the second one he shaped as chair of the programme committee – and also the last one he actively contributed to.
The Lifetime Award was the big final of 23 years of CESIO Congress.
