Fraunhofer-Bessel Research Award

Scientists and scholars from all non-European countries, who completed their doctorates less than 18 years ago, who are internationally recognized for their achievements in the field of applied research, and who in future are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements which will have a seminal influence on their discipline beyond their immediate field of work, are eligible to be nominated for a Fraunhofer-Bessel Research Award.

Award winners are invited to spend a period of up to one year cooperating on a long-term research project with specialist colleagues at one of the Fraunhofer Institutes in Germany. The stay may be divided up into blocks. The Humboldt Foundation and the Fraunhofer Society for the Advancement of Applied Research jointly grant up to three Fraunhofer-Bessel Research Awards annually.

The award is valued at 45,000 EUR.

Deadline: Nominations may be submitted by regular mail at any time. Reviewing a nomination takes approximately six months.
