The Clara Immerwahr Award, launched by UniCat in 2011, is conferred annually to a young female scientist from Germany or abroad at an early stage of her career (postdoctoral fellow, junior researcher) for outstanding results in Catalysis Research. It is associated with a financial support of 15.000 Euro* for a research stay at UniCat and thought to establish close collaborative links with UniCat working groups.
The Award serves as an excellent exemplar of the promotion of outstanding young female scientists and is another successful measure taken by UniCat aimed at advancing female researchers.
The call for applications for the Clara Immerwahr Award 2015 will be published in Aug/Sept 2014. The winner will be honored during a public ceremony involving a guest lecture
on February 13th, 2015 at TU Berlin.
* The money may only be used for the winning research project as follows:
- Payment of an allowance to cover the living costs during the stay in UniCat (up to 2,000 € per month). In addition to this allowance, the prize or parts thereof may not be used for personal emoluments of the winner.
- Consumables (regarding the project) incl. reimbursement of travel costs (single ticket from home institution to Berlin and return ticket)
