Federico Bella nominated “Chemistry Europe Fellow”

Federico Bella, full professor at Department of Applied Science and Technology-DISAT

Federico Bella has been named a Fellow of Chemistry Europe. The professor from the Department of Applied Science and Technology-DISAT will be among 22 outstanding individuals working in European universities and research centers, being selected for their remarkable contributions to Chemistry Europe, embodying excellence in research, support towards new generations, creativity, and innovation, thus reflecting the breadth and depth of talent within Europe. Past Chemistry Europe Fellows include Nobel Laureates Ben Feringa, Jean-Marie Lehn, and Sir Fraser Stoddart.

The announcement came on March 7: the association, which now has 16 chemical companies located in 15 European countries and represents more than 75,000 chemists working in Europe, honors outstanding chemists in European chemical societies. It recognizes individuals whose impactful work enriches the field of chemistry and strengthens the collective efforts of Chemistry Europe.

This is the first time that a professor working at Politecnico is awarded with this important international recognition. Federico Bella will thus have the prestigious task of bringing the research conducted at PoliTO to the attention of the European scientific community. His pioneering studies specifically involve the field of electrochemistry, with particular reference to sustainable photovoltaics and post-lithium batteries.

Professor Bella and the other newly selected Chemistry Europe Fellows will be celebrated in a special session that will take place during the European Chemical Society conference in Dublin, July 2024.
