Clara Immerwahr Award

The Clara Immerwahr Award, launched by UniCat in 2011, is an award for promoting equity and excellence in catalysis research fostering young female scientists at an early stage of their career. The award is dedicated to Dr. Clara Immerwahr (1870-1915), who was the first woman  in Germany to earn a doctorate in Physical Chemistry in 1900.

The Clara Immerwahr Award is conferred annually to a young female scientist from Germany or abroad at an early stage of her career (postdoctoral fellow, junior researcher) for outstanding results in Catalysis Research. It is associated with a financial support of 15.000 Euro for a research stay at UniSysCat and thought to establish close collaborative links with UniSysCat working groups.

The Award serves as an excellent example of the promotion of outstanding young female scientists and is another successful measure taken by UniSysCat aimed at advancing female researchers.

We are pleased to congratulate this year's awardee, Dr. Maria Escudero Escribano from University of Copenhagen, DK. Dr. Escudero Escibano will be honored during a public ceremony  involving a guest lecture held by Prof. Dr. Clémence Corminboeuf is postponed. We keep you updated.
