As the next generation of chemists, the fate of our future and our surroundings lies in our hands. With an increase of awareness for our environment and our planet, the number of problems in need for solutions has increased.

We, the Jungchemiker, made it our task to provide an opportunity for young chemists to present themselves and their research in order to bring these problems and their solutions to the attention of the general public.

The "Jungchemiker Nachhaltigkeitspreis" (Young Chemists Award for Sustainability) rewards outstanding research conducted by young chemists in Austria, which has the potential to greatly influence our country's future.

You are younger than 35 years old, member of the Austrian Chemical Society (GÖCH) and most of your research was performed in Austria? Send us a short description of your research (max. 2 pages, 12pt) and a conformation that it is indeed your work (publication or thesis). With some luck you will be asked to present your research during our program "Chemistry of Tomorrow" during the upcoming Austrian Chemistry Days in September. Additionally the price is awarded with an amount of money which corresponds to the number of days before this year's "Earth Overshoot Day". This day marks the day, on which all resources, which can be produced in a sustainable manner, are depleted. Last year's overshoot day was on August 1st, after only 212 days.

Active members of the Austrian Young Chemists Network are exluded from the competition. Applicants have no legal claim to the approval. All rights of reproduction and copyright remain with the author.
