This year the BMBWF, in cooperation with the Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe (IDM), is honoring scientific talent from the countries of the Danube region already for the tenth time.
The Danubius Young Scientist Award is a prize for young scientists to stimulate young scientists (up to 5 years after receiving their Masters/PhD) to deal with the Danube and the region from a variety of scientific perspectives.
In addition, the prize should contribute to promoting the excellence of the scientific community in the Danube region.
One scientist in each of the 14 countries of the Danube region will receive the award. The prize is endowed with 1,350 euros per person.
Candidates are nominated by the scientific organization (university, academy of sciences, research institute, etc.) where they work or have studied.
The selection is then made by an international jury.
Deadline for nominating candidates is May 5th, 2023!
The award ceremony is planned for an event in October 2023. Details on this will be announced at a later date.
In addition, thanks to the generous support of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, the winners will receive a personal invitation to visit one of their research facilities in Ispra, Italy, probably in 2024.
