The DGM Prize for Young Talent is aimed at doctoral students or doctoral graduates whose degree was awarded no more than 2 years ago at the time of the proposal. The recipients work on a topic from non-profit research in the field of materials science and engineering. The recipients have a university degree and their previous study and work results indicate an above-average performance and have points of contact with committees or events of the German Society for Materials Science with their work.
A self-nomination is possible. In this case, two letters of reference are expected to evaluate the quality of the nomination. The DGM Prize for Young Talent can be awarded a maximum of four times a year. Personal membership is not a prerequisite for nomination. The DGM Prize for Young Talent consists of a certificate and two years of free personal DGM membership. The prize is awarded following a proposal by the Award Committee and a decision by the Board of Directors of the DGM. The award is announced publicly on the occasion of a central event of the DGM of the corresponding year (e.g. DGM Day). The announcement of the awarded prize is furthermore made in the central presentation media of the DGM.
