Biodiversity Award of the Academy of Sciences and Literature| Mainz
Every two years (even years), the Biodiversity Award is presented to outstanding young scientists for the recognition of innovative master's and diploma theses (only in exceptional cases also for doctoral theses) that deal with biodiversity research - including conservation concepts and functional aspects of biodiversity.
With this award, the Academy of Sciences and Literature in Mainz aims to motivate talented young scientists.
The members of the Commission for Biology are entitled to make proposals for the Biodiversity Award of the Academy. The chairman makes a preliminary selection with the sponsor of the prize, Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Barthlott, and determines whether the applications formally meet the criteria and can be coordinated with the commission.
The prize is linked to a tax-free premium of currently 1,000 euros. It will be awarded to the prize winner at the Academy's annual celebration.
