Every two years, the Liebig Association for Organic Chemistry in the German Chemical Society awards the ORCHEM Award for Young Scientists who have qualified through new, original and trend-setting scientific work in the field of organic chemistry and who do not yet have a management function or have only just started were recently appointed.
The prize is endowed with EUR 5000 and is financially supported by BASF. It is usually awarded to two people and includes an award certificate and prize money of €2,500.00 per person.
The ORCHEM prize is traditionally awarded at the ORCHEM Conference . The awardee present the results of their award-winning work in a lecture.
The next call for call for proposals is planned for the ORCHEM 2024 (09.09 - 11.09./Regensburg). Further information follows.
