Bernd Rendel Prize 2019
Two early career researchers have been selected to receive the 2019 Bernd Rendel Prize of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) for their promising and original research in geoscience. Dini Adyasari, a doctoral researcher at the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) in Bremen, and Michael Grund, a doctoral researcher in geophysics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), both impressed the jury. They will each receive €2,000 from the Bernd Rendel Foundation, which is administered by the Stifterverband. The aim of the prize money is to enable prizewinners to participate in international conferences and meetings. The award will be presented during the annual meeting of the German Geological Society, which will be held between 22 and 25 September 2019 in Münster.
