Applications are now being accepted for the SolarWorld Junior Einstein Award 2016. The oldest and most prestigious prize for young scientists in the photovoltaic industry will be awarded this year for the 11th time.  The honor offers not only an attractive cash prize, but also opens many doors for young scientists:  As part of the award ceremony, winners will meet important personalities in the photovoltaic industry.

“In these challenging times for the solar industry, it is important to us to give young scientists a perspective, because young scientists have the ideas to move solar technology forward and take it to the next level,” says SolarWorld CEO Dr.-Ing. E.h. Frank Asbeck.

"It is nice to see that my work is considered valuable by leading representatives of the photovoltaic industry, and that the results are being applied in practice”, says Michael Rauer, winner of the SolarWorld Junior Einstein Award 2015. “I was very happy about the Junior Einstein Award, which represents the highlight of my scientific career to date. For me, the award ceremony was an outstanding end for my work, through which I have come into contact with many renowned scientists in my field.”

Students in the fields of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, renewable energy, engineering, chemistry, physics, process engineering or similar areas who have completed a thesis focused on solar technology or a related area are eligible to apply, if the scientific thesis was written in German or English between April 2015 and April 2016. The deadline for applications is April 29, 2016.

This year, the prize will once again be presented at a celebratory event during the solar trade show Intersolar in Munich, Germany.
