Bernd Rendel Prize 2020
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is to award the Bernd Rendel Prize 2020 to Anja Allabar from the University of Tübingen and Milad Asgarimehr from the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences/TU Berlin for the promising and original geoscientific research they have conducted at the start of their careers. The decision was made by a jury consisting of members of the DFG’s geosciences review boards. The researchers 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, for example. The prize will be awarded at the annual meeting of the German Geological Society (DGGV); however, this will not take place until 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
