The award honours excellent research and supports establishing new cooperation structures with international research institutions.

Scientists from HZDR and HZB nominated Prof Spiccia. HZB scientists Prof. Dr. Emad Aziz, Prof. Dr. Klaus Lips und Dr. Alexander Schnegg underligned his significant contributions to energy materials research, whereas Dr. Holger Stephan und Prof. Jörg Steinbach from HZDR acknowledged his results on nanomaterials in cancer research.

In total, eight outstanding scientists have been selected as Helmholtz International Fellows this year.  Candidates must be nominated for the award by a Helmholtz Centre working in a similar research field as the respective candidates. The quality of the candidates' research is the most important criterion for the award. Nominations may be made at any time. The Helmholtz Executive Committee selects the award winners.
