Some GDCh prizes already have a tradition of more than a hundred years, others have only been awarded for a few years. What they all have in common is that they honor outstanding scientific achievements. The GDCh has appointed highly qualified commissions to select the award awardee . The commissions work on the basis of the allocation guidelines of the GDCh. Equal opportunity is also a fundamental part of the decision-making process. The final decision is made by the Board of the GDCh.
