Wöhler BASF Young Talent Award

Wöhler-BASF Young Talent Award

The Wöhler-BASF Young Talent Prize is awarded to young scientists with a doctorate for outstanding, independent scientific work in the field of inorganic chemistry. This work is said to have been completed within the first six years since the start of independent research.

The prize is endowed with 5000 euros and is supported by BASF. It is advertised every two years and usually awarded during the lecture conference for inorganic chemistry.

The deadline for applications / proposals for the award in 2022 has expired. The next call for proposals is planned for award in 2024.


Place and title at the time of the award
