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 now by UniSysCat 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.
We are grateful to BASF SE for sponsoring the Clara Immerwahr Award in 2022, 2023 and 2024.
The call for applications for the Clara Immerwahr Award 2024 is now open. The application deadline is November 5, 2023.
The Clara Immerwahr Award Ceremony 2024 will take place on Friday April 12, 2024 at 2 pm at the TU Berlin. Guests are cordially invited!
