DECHEMA Industrial Bioprocess Award
Young scientists who have made industrially significant contributions to bioprocess engineering during their PhD thesis are now invited to apply for the DECHEMA Industrial Bioprocess Award. The thesis should have been completed between July 2021 and December 2022. The deadline for applications is January 15th, 2023.
The prize, which will be offered for the sixth time, comes with 5,000 € prize money. It is financially supported by the industrial members of the DECHEMA working party "Bioprocess Engineering". The successful candidate will be awarded with the prize at the "Himmelfahrtstagung 2023" and is invited to give a presentation there.
To apply please submit:
Applicants are requested to submit a comprehensive summary of their work (up to 4 pages). The key topic should be clearly visible, and the target, motivation, systematic approach and results should be addressed and illustrated. For that, feel free to include figures and tables. Based on this summary, a pre-selection of candidates will be made. The award committee will then review the full version of the PhD thesis and select a winner. Please also submit a current Curriculum Vitae with your application.
DECHEMA working party “Bioprocess Engineering” focuses on the biotechnical production of fine and bulk chemicals as well as biopharmaceuticals with the help of enzymes, prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. The topics cover the entire spectrum of modern bioprocess engineering: from genes to products; from µL to production scale; from upstream to downstream.
