There will again be a Forum Junge Spitzenforschung in 2022!

Practice-oriented ideas stemming from innovative research

6 Researches | 6 Pitches | 6 Prizes

With prize money totalling 30.000 € to use on further research.

Once a year within the framework of the research idea competition “Forum Junge Spitzenforschung”, the Stiftung Industrieforschung and the Berlin universities seek young researchers (m/f/d) with innovative and practice-oriented ideas and approaches to solutions that emerge from their innovative basic research. The science competition’s next edition will take place in 2022.

We would like to thank the Stiftung Industrieforschung for the kind support and for providing the prize money.
