Winners of the CeNS Publication Award 2023

Every year, CeNS awards prizes for excellent publications of CeNS members which have been published during the past 12 months. On Friday, November 25, the winners of this year's CeNS Publication Awards were announced online. Ten 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.
