Gustav-Hertz-Prize

Gustav Hertz

The Gustav-Hertz-Prize is an award for outstanding, recently completed work of one or several young physicists and is consequently aimed at encouraging up-and-coming young talent. Here the work earmarked for the award should come from the fields of experimental or theoretical physics, show a certain conclusion and contain new findings. Here "findings" is not to be interpreted as basic research, but rather results are also evaluated in the sense of application and practical use. People who have successfully completed their doctorate are also regarded as "young physicists” and in special cases even people with post-doctoral qualifications, insofar as they have not been offered a lifelong post as university lecturer or a key post in a non-university research institute or in industry.

The award consists of:

  • € 7,500 prize money
  • a certificate
