To be eligible, papers should be of exceptional quality and focus on comprehensive climate research. This particularly means addressing socially relevant questions that will soon arise due to climate change or which have already become pressing. Final papers exploring climate-related topics from a natural sciences, humanities, social sciences and/or economics perspective are welcome. The “Young Climate Scientists Award” is announced every two years.
Candidates can be nominated by members of the CEN or can self-nominate. There is no age limit. In addition to the paper itself, please submit a motivational letter (if self-nominating) or written recommendation (if nominated by a CEN member), together with your CV. A jury with representatives of the CEN, Universität Hamburg and the Gesellschaft Harmonie will select the winning candidates.
