Recognition and motivation

Recognition and motivation

The Jung Foundation for Science and Research provides awards for outstanding research achievements to mid-career investigators and honors for lifetime achievements. It also helps exceptionally talented young investigators to establish an independent academic research career. International candidates for the price and medal are proposed and selected by the members of the Scientific Advisory Board, composed of leading scientists, and are then approved by the Board of Trustees. Junior researchers apply with specific grant proposals, which are then reviewed by the Scientific Board members in conjunction with the Trustees.

The Ernst Jung Prize for Medicine is dedicated to persons and projects which give hope for new approaches to treatment.

The Ernst Jung Gold Medal for Medicine honours contributions to medical progress which have largely already been completed.

The Ernst Jung Career Advancement Award for Medical Research enables top medical specialists working abroad to continue their research in Germany.

Together, annual prices and awards amount to € 540,000.
