Winners of the CeNS Publication Award 2019

On Friday, November 22nd, the winners of this year's CeNS Publication Awards were announced to the CeNS members during a festive event. Eleven awards were presented in the categories "Best Interdisciplinary Publication", "Scientific Breakthrough" and "Best Junior Scientist Publication". With this award, remarkably successful cooperation projects within CeNS as well as outstanding research of an individual research group of CeNS were distinguished.

Each year, CeNS awards prizes for excellent publications of CeNS members which have been published during the past 12 months. This year, the candidates submitted numerous articles which appeared in high-impact journals between October 2018 and October 2019.
