The Klaus Tschira Foundation is looking for young scientists who have completed their doctorate with very good in 2019 or 2020 and who will explain their research achievements to a non-scientific audience in an article they have written themselves. The prize is awarded in the following subject areas: biology, chemistry, geosciences, computer science, mathematics, neurosciences and physics - including related subjects.

What is special about the KlarText Prize: Everyone wins. Because all participants - regardless of their placement - can take part in a two-day “Science Communication Workshop”, carried out by the National Institute for Science Communication (NaWik). The NaWik experts show how professional communication works.

The winners can each look forward to 7,500 euros and being accepted into the foundation's alumni network. In addition, their contributions are edited together with science journalists and published in a magazine.
