DECHEMA Industrial Bioprocess Award

A distinct goal of the DECHEMA working group “Biochemical Engineering“ is the support of young scientists. Therefore, the DECHEMA Industrial Bioprocess Award will be given for an outstanding PhD thesis.

Young scientists who have made industrially profound contributions to biochemical engineering during their PhD thesis are invited to apply for the DECHEMA Industrial Bioprocess Award. The award that is offered for the third time comes with €5,000 prize money and is being sponsored by the industrial members of the DECHEMA working party “Biochemical Engineering”.

This group focuses on the biotechnical production of fine and bulk chemicals as well as biopharmaceuticals by means of enzymes, prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. The topics comprise the whole spectrum of modern biochemical engineering:

-          from genes to products
-          from µL to production scale
-          from upstream to downstream

Young scientists who have finished their thesis between December 2018 and December 2019 are invited to submit their application online.
Deadline for the submission of applications is 15 January 2020.

The successful candidate will be awarded with the prize at the “Himmelfahrtstagung 2020” and are invited to give a presentation there.
