Clara Immerwahr Award 2018

The call for applications for the Clara Immerwahr Award 2018 is now open.

The application deadline is October 31, 2017.

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 example of the promotion of outstanding young female scientists and is another successful measure taken by UniCat aimed at advancing female researchers.

The Clara Immerwahr Award winner 2018 will be announced on November 29, 2017 and will be honored during a public ceremony involving a guest lecture held by the internationally renowned female scientist, Prof. Dr. Jana Roithová, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic, on February 9, 2018 at TU Berlin.
