Excellent Research

Research Prizes

The UoC strongly believes that individual academic excellence is at the heart of progress in research and should therefore be encouraged and rewarded.

That is why the UoC awards one Max Delbrück Prize (life and natural sciences), one Leo Spitzer Prize (arts, humanities, and human sciences) and one Hans Kelsen Prize (law, management, and social sciences) to UoC senior researchers every year for outstanding academic achievements.

Moreover, the University awards three junior research prizes to outstanding early-stage scholars and scientists.





The Faculties, speakers of UoC Centers of Excellence, members of the IS Steering Committee, and previous award winners can propose candidates.

The application guidelines can be found on the website of the UoC’s Research Management Division, Department 72, Large-scale Projects and Excellence Initiative.
