The Danubius Award was created in 2011 by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research (BMWF) and the Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe (IDM) with the intention to honour individuals with extraordinary scientific achievements and output in relation to the Danube Region. For 2014, it is envisaged to complement this award with a specific prize for young scientists – the so-called “Danubius Young Scientist Award”.
This award will be given to 14 young scientists – one in each country that is part of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region [Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Moldavia, Montenegro, Serbia, the Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Romania and the Ukraine]. The award seeks to encourage young scientists to engage in the scientific examination of issues and questions specifically related to the Danube, and to stimulate the scientific community in the Danube region. The award will be endowed with € 1,200.- for each winner of the Young Scientist Award.
