The mission of IAS includes promoting and disseminating knowledge on atmospheric PM to the general public and supporting the career development of young researchers. Every two years the “IAS Award” is given to young members of the Association who have made significant contributions to the advancement of aerosol science during their Ph.D. and Master’s Thesis.
