For 2017, the international committee has chosen Professor Manfred Scheer as the winner of this prestigious prize. The presentation of the prize was observed at the opening ceremony of the XX All-Russian School-Conference on Organic Chemistry held to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the birth of academician Alexander Arbuzov (1877–1968) on 18th September 2017 in the main hall of the Kazan Scientific Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
