We extended the deadline for submitting nominations. The new deadline is Friday, 28th February 2014. The Award seeks to encourage young scientists to engage in the scientific examination of issues and questions specifically related to the Danube Region. It will be given to 14 young scientists - one in each country that is part of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region. The candidate has to be nominated by his/her hosting scientific organisation (university, academy of sciences, etc.).
Call for Nominations 2014
The Danubius Award was created in 2011 by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research (BMWF) and the Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe (IDM) with the intention to
honour individuals with extraordinary scientific achievements and output in relation to the Danube Region. Within a rotation system, achievements in the fields of humanities, social sciences and
cultural studies are awarded in one year, and achievements in the field of life sciences in the following year.
For 2014, it is envisaged to complement this award with a specific prize for young scientists – the so-called “Danubius Young Scientist Award”. This award will be given to 14 young scientists - one in each country that is part of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region [Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Moldavia, Montenegro, Serbia, the Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Romania and the Ukraine]. The award seeks to encourage young scientists to engage in the scientific examination of issues and questions specifically related to the Danube, and to stimulate the scientific community in the Danube region. The award will be endowed with € 1,200.- for each winner of the Young Scientist Award.
The candidate has to be nominated by his/her hosting scientific organisation (university, academy of sciences, etc.) meaning that the candidate himself / herself cannot apply for the award. Every academic institution can only nominate one candidate for their entire institution (not one candidate per institute, faculty etc.). An international expert jury will be established (including members of the Danube Rectors ́ Conference) that will be responsible for assessing all incoming nominations and for drawing up a final ranking. The most highly ranked candidate from each of the countries of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region will be recommended for the award.
