The prize will be awarded for final theses which push forward sustainable research by their special approaches, methods, results and practical relevance. The submitted theses must have been prepared within the last two years (counted from the respective closing date of applications).

Research for sustainability and marine science

"By offering the CAMPUS AWARD we would like to acknowledge innovative ideas which contribute to maintaining the viability of the earth for future generations", explained Dr. Rita Kellner-Stoll and Rainer Stoll. A prerequisite for sustainable use of natural and particularly marine resources is that the researched knowledge is made available comprehensively, accurately and in a suitable way for practical use. An essential point for the award is a research approach involving all participants engaged in the project "at eye level" and involvement of local partners, enterprises or the civil society", the founders specify.

The "CAMPUS AWARD: Research for a sustainable future" is also supported by the enterprises REETEC and ADLER Solar.
