Nano Innovation Award

The Nano Innovation Award is awarded annually by the Center for NanoScience together with the CeNS spin-offs attocube systems, ibidi, Nanion Technologies, and NanoTemper Technologies, to honor junior researchers at Bavarian research institutions for excellent research in the nanosciences. Outstanding PhD students in the field of nanosciences/nano(bio)technology are invited to apply. Research projects should offer some potential for innovative applications.

Prize money:
1. Prize: € 4,000
