Bettina Haupt-Förderpreis for the history of chemistry

The Bettina Haupt Foundation promotes research in the history of chemistry by awarding the Bettina Haupt-Förderpreis for the history of chemistry to outstanding work by young scientists from German-speaking countries.

Both published and publication-ready works on any topic from the history of chemistry are considered, including articles, as long as they have at least been accepted for publication in a high-ranking journal . Collaborative works by several authors as well as thematically related individual works can also be awarded. Published works should not be older than three years. The prize is usually awarded every two years as part of the lecture Division of History of Chemistry and is endowed with 1,500 euros. The awardee has the opportunity to present his/her results in the form of a lecture.

The Bettina Haupt Foundation is administered in trust by the GDCh and was founded by Prof. Dr. Heinz Sperlich and his wife Ingeborg to commemorate their daughter Dr. Bettina Haupt, née Sperlich, who herself worked in the field of the history of chemistry .
