Young Investigator Award 2018 – Felix Sommer, Georgios Marinos & Jakob von Frieling
Once a year the CRC 1182 supports 2 junior researchers with each 15,000 €. The aim of the Young Investigator Award is to support on one hand the junior researchers of the CRC 1182 by providing them the possibility to develop their independent research project, on the other hand it is for the whole CRC 1182 the possibility to gain new scientific input and more connections within the research projects.
In 2018 the CRC 1182 supports the proposed projects of three young researchers with each 10,000 €.
