Science Award


Announcement of the
Science Award Electrochemistry
Raised by Volkswagen and BASF


Electrochemistry and its application are increasingly important for the future of energy supply and individual mobility. Without strong and efficient energy storage neither electric vehicles nor renewable energy can contribute to sustainable energy supply and individual mobility.

Therefore, BASF SE and Volkswagen AG, two leading industrial companies, wish to fund excellent scientific research in electrochemistry in the faculties of chemistry, physics and engineering, as well as its applications.

The research activities in focus of this contest could address, but are not limited to, battery materials, cells, battery systems, production and operations as well as recycling.

We are glad to announce a new contest in 2019. The award for the best application selected by a high-ranked jury of experts from industry and academia comprises a prize money of 50,000 Euro.

For detailed information particularly with regard to terms and conditions, application requirements and further application details, please refer to the contest invitation which is available on this website. Closing date for applications is June 30th, 2019, midnight (Central European Summer Time, CEST).

The Final Award Ceremony will take place
in Wolfsburg, Germany
on 11th - 13th November 2019.
