The award winners of the conference were two experimentalists: Olga Narygina for the best oral presentation and Verity Borthwick for the best poster presentation. These experiments are outstanding in a sense that they really allow us to understand observations which were hitherto not easily accessible said Bjrn Winkler, chair of the scientific committee of the EuroMinScI Programme. Both of the award winners received a generous travel grant, which they can use for attending a meeting, or visiting another project team involved in the EuroMinScI Programme.

24-year old Olga Narygina is a member of EuroMinScIs MCEC (Mineralogy and Chemistry of Earths Core) project and works with iron-nickel alloy, the supposed main component of the Earths core. She investigates its properties in a diamond anvil apparatus under high pressure and temperature in order to constrain the influence of carbon on the phase relations in the iron-nickel system. Olga Narygina is currently a PhD student at the University of Bayreuth, having received her M.Sc. in Physics at Ural State University, Ekaterinburg, Russia, in 2006. She was astonished to have won the prize and is still debating on what to do with her travel grant. I might use it to attend the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco said Narygina.

Verity Borthwick is a 25-year old PhD student from Stockholm University and a graduate of the University of Sydney. She was delighted to have been selected as an awardee, and will use the grant to participate in the Gordon Research Conference on rock deformation real-time rheology in New Hamsphire, USA, this August. This is a really relevant conference for my project and it will also be a great chance to convey what we have learnt to people outside the European mineral sciences community said Borthwick. Working in the MINSUBSTRDYN (Subgrain Structure Development in Rocks and Metals) group, she is looking at substructural dynamics, the understanding of which being
