Per Møller, Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark, received the prestigious award within surface technology at the opening ceremony at the US SUR/FIN-2017 conference held June 19th in Atlanta, Georgia.

The prize is awarded by NASF (National Association for Surface Finishing), and it is traditionally awarded to a person, who in theoretical as well as in practical ways has contributed to ground-breaking research within electro-chemical surface treatment.

A unanimous prize committee justified the award with the fact that Professor Per Møller for many years has contributed internationally to the field of electroplating as well as to the scientific literature by publishing the book “Advanced Surface Technology - A holistic view on the extensive and intertwined world of applied surface engineering”. About the book NASF says “It’s the greatest and most important work within surface technology for the last 40 years”. The book is written in cooperation with Lars Pleth Nielsen, who is director and surface technology researcher at Danish Technological Institute.

With the honorable prize comes the obligation of giving the ”William Blum Memorial Lecture”. Professor Per Møller will give this lecture at the SUR/FIN conference in Cleveland, Ohio, 2018.
