Call for Nominations for the Waltrude-and-Friedrich-Liebau-Prize for the Promotion of Interdisciplinarity in Crystallography

Author: Wulf Depmeier, Kiel - Date: 24 September, 2020

The prize of the “Foundation of the Waltrude and Friedrich Liebau Prize for the Promotion of Interdisciplinarity in Crystallography” is intended to help promote the link between crystallography and other sciences in teaching and research and to make it more visible to the public. The award is given to work in which either methods and approaches of crystallography have been successfully applied to problems of another science (partner science) or methods and approaches of a partner science have been successfully applied to problems of crystallography.

The Waltrude-and-Friedrich-Liebau-Prize for the Promotion of Interdisciplinarity in Crystallography is endowed with 2000 €. It will be presented at the evening of honour during the annual conference of the DGK in Hamburg, which this year will be held online.

All members of the DGK as well as members of partner societies are entitled to nominate. Self-applications by prize candidates are also permitted.

Proposals with a brief justification are requested by Monday, 30 November 2020, and should be submitted by e-mail to the chairman of the prize commission (Prof. Dr. Wulf Depmeier, University of Kiel, wulf.depmeier@ifg.uni-kiel.de).

Due to the ongoing phase of low interest rates, this prize could not be awarded for years after the first award in 2010. The fact that this has been possible again since 2019 is thanks to the generous donations of the members of the DGK.
