Italian Section of The Combustion Institute

Fellows of the Combustion Institute

Members of the international combustion community recognized by their peers as distinguished for outstanding contributions to combustion, whether it be in research or in applications, may be designated Fellows of The Combustion Institute. This lifetime honorific title confers no special rights, privileges or duties. Fellows are active participants in The Combustion Institute, as evidenced by the publishing of papers in CI affiliated journals, attendance at the International Symposia on Combustion, and/or attendance at CI Section meetings.

The honor of being elected Fellow helps members of The Combustion Institute remain competitive for awards, honors, and promotions when compared with people from other disciplines. The honor also supports CI members in their advancement to leadership positions in their own institutions and in the broader society.
