The New Campus Seminar Communication Award
The Campus Seminar Series
Two talks and two different topics combined: This is the Campus Seminar at the Max Planck Campus in Göttingen. Since autumn 2018, this series has been running in its current form and is jointly organized by Junior Faculty members of the MPI for Multidisciplinary Sciences (MPI-NAT) (formerly MPI for Biophysical Chemistry) and the MPI for Dynamics and Self-Organization (MPI-DS). The event is scheduled on Wednesday’s from 11 pm till noon. The talks are typically chosen in a way that two different areas of research are represented and address a broad scientific audience. Each talk lasts 20 minutes, after which there is time for a 10-minute discussion.
The Campus Seminar Communication Award
Since mid-September 2019, there has been an innovation at the Campus Seminar: Two prizes will be awarded every year for the best talks (participation is optional). One prize will go to a PhD student and one to a postdoc. “We will award the prize for the best talk and very good science communication skills. Everyone is encouraged to participate to tell us about their science”, explains Stefan Glöggler, who is one of the Campus Seminar’s organizers. Each prize is endowed with 1000 euros donated by the Manfred Eigen Foundation. The prize winners are selected in a peer review process in which the presenters of the campus seminar voted for most comprehensive talks. The prizes will be awarded in summer of the respective year.
