the hans c. freeman lectureship fund
The Hans C. Freeman Lectureship was established in 2010 by the Foundation for Inorganic Chemistry within the University of Sydney, with generous support from the Freeman family, to mark both the many outstanding contributions of Professor Hans Freeman AO, to Australian science and his co-founding of the Foundation with Dr Alexander Boden AO. The aim of the lectureship is to enhance the international standing of the School of Chemistry and the University by fostering new collaborations and linkages with outstanding academics from around the world. The recipient of the annual lectureship will have an outstanding record in any field related to inorganic chemistry or its teaching and will present a series of lectures within the School of Chemistry over a period of weeks. During his/her stay at the University, the lecturer will be expected to interact with postgraduate and honours students in a way that will enhance their appreciation of science and the international opportunities that it offers.
