Encouraging Excellence Is an Investment in the Future

If your goal for tomorrow is research results that are pioneering and science that is successful in helping people, then you have to invest in excellence today. This is why we pave the way for Europe’s talented young scientists by sponsoring several prizes.

Eppendorf has promoted talented scientists in their research endeavors for a long time now, because it is they who will determine the course of the scientific achievements of the future.

For instance, since 1995 Eppendorf has awarded the Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators every year to a scientist in Europe who is age 35 or under. The prize honors outstanding work and new analytical concepts in biomedical research that are based on molecular biological methods. The winner is selected by an independent jury headed by Professor Reinhard Jahn of the Max PIanck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, Germany, and the prize is awarded in cooperation with the scientific journal "Nature".

The Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology is a research award that is likewise awarded yearly, but on an international level. It comes with a stipend of USD 25,000 and supports young scientists who have made exceptional contributions to neurobiological research using methods from molecular and cell biology. This prize, too, is for researchers who are 35 or under and has been awarded since 2002 by Eppendorf in cooperation with the magazine "Science".

Both of these prizes enjoy great renown and create a high degree of visibility and recognition within the research community for the winners, thus offering talented young scientists solid prospects for long-term success.
