Centenary Of The Faraday Society

EDM number 1756 in 2002-03, proposed by Brian Iddon on 15/10/2003.

That this House records the centenary of the foundation of the Faraday Society in 1903, named in honour of the distinguished British scientist, Michael Faraday; notes that among its founding objectives was to provide a pioneering bridge between science and technology and that these horizons were subsequently expanded to encompass science at the interfaces of chemistry, physics and biology; notes that the Faraday Society was subsequently incorporated into the Royal Society of Chemistry whose Faraday Division has continued the proud tradition of Faraday Discussions, which operate on a global basis, and has continued the publishing tradition that saw the original Transactions of the Faraday Society transformed first into the Faraday Transactions and finally into Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics whose international and interdisciplinary record is unequalled; notes that this Faraday Society centenary is being marked by a special publication of 24 scientific papers selected from the last 100 years; notes the special event being held by the Royal Society of Chemistry in conjunction with the Royal Institution on Monday 27th October; and further notes the unrivalled contribution that the study of physical chemistry and the chemical sciences have made and continue to make to our understanding of nature, to the quality of life, and to the knowledge economy of the 21st Century.

This motion has been signed by a total of 65 MPs.
