Distinguished Paper Award
One paper presented at the annual meeting of the Adhesion Society is
selected each year to receive this award. The selection process is
coordinated by the Vice President of the Adhesion Society. The selected
paper has distinguished itself within this process as being outstanding
in the categories of quality of research, impact on field, novelty and
effectiveness of presentation. The awardee receives $1,000 and a plaque
commemorating the award.
This award was established in 1999 and was supported until 2005 by
the H.B. Fuller Company as a tribute to Rolf Schubert, former
Vice-President of Research and Development and Chief Technology Officer
for the H.B. Fuller Company. In 2006, National Starch and Chemical
Company began the support of this award. It is now sponsored by Henkel.
