Bernd Rendel Prize 2021
Two researchers will receive the Bernd Rendel Prize 2021 awarded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) for conducting promising and original geoscientific research at the beginning of their careers: Simon Rosanka, a doctoral student at the University of Cologne and Forschungszentrum Jülich, and Jan Schönig, a doctoral student at the University of Göttingen, were selected by a jury made up of members of the DFG review boards in the geosciences. The prizewinners will each receive €2,000 from the Bernd Rendel Foundation, which is administered by the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft, an association dedicated to the promotion of the humanities and sciences in Germany. The prize money is intended to enable them to pursue academic activities such as attending international congresses and conferences. The prize will be awarded during the annual conference of the German Geological Society from 19 to 23 September 2021 in Karlsruhe.
