GDCh awards

GDCh awards

All GDCh awards are highly regarded in the national and international scientific community. The German Chemical Society honors outstanding scientific achievements in the field of chemistry and related sciences.

Some GDCh awards have a tradition going back more than a hundred years, others have only been awarded for a few years. What they all have in common is that they recognize outstanding scientific achievements. The GDCh has appointed highly qualified commissions for the selection of the award winners. The commissions work on the basis of the GDCh's award guidelines. Equal opportunities are also a fundamental part of the decision-making process. The final decision is made by the board of the GDCh.
