Sustainability competition for talented young researchersStarting immediately, talented young researchers from all six EuroTech partner universities can enter the competition for a new sustainability prize. The EuroTech Future Award is intended for scientists who have completed their Doctorate no more than five years ago. Their research must focus on one or more of the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDG). The deadline for the first application round is April 9, 2023.
A central aspect in the evaluation of the competition entries is the ability of the applicants to make their research understandable to a lay audience. In addition, initial (interim) scientific findings must already exist. Joint projects conducted by researchers from different EuroTech member universities receive a bonus.
The Award is endowed with 2000 euros for first place, 1000 euros for second place and 500 euros for third place. The winners will be selected by a panel of experts consisting of the vice-presidents for research at the respective member universities. The winners will be invited to an international awards ceremony in Brussels, where they will have the opportunity to present their research to the public.
