In 2017, the German building chemicals industry association Deutsche Bauchemie e.V. will again be conferring awards for innovative and practice-oriented dissertations and diploma theses written by qualified young talents. The submission deadline for the current competition is 21.04.2017.
Conducted biennially by this Frankfurt-based industrial association, the competition aims to foster budding scientists from diverse German universities, colleges and polytechnic institutes. Another of its purposes is to help the building chemicals industry secure more public awareness with regard to things like raw material research and development, the formulation of performant, sustainable building products, and their application in the construction sector. With a remuneration of € 4000, the “Science Medal” is intended for young graduate students who have finished their dissertations within the last three years. Graduates of diploma and master’s studies are invited to enter their theses on building-chemical topics in the “Promotion Award” competition worth € 2000.
All entries will be examined for significance and topicality by a committee of appraisal composed of distinguished professors of building chemistry, all hand-picked by the executive board of Deutsche Bauchemie. Their decisions will be based on the papers’ scientific quality, presentation of contents and practicability. Both awards will be presented to the laureates at Deutsche Bauchemie’s next annual meeting in Lüneburg on 23.06.2017.
