The Schwäbisch Gmünd Prize for Young Scientists

In the spirit of the mission of east, the Schwäbisch Gmünd Prize has been established with the purpose to encourage promising young scientists.


 

The Schwäbisch Gmünd Prize for Young Scientists is given in the name of the town of Schwäbisch Gmünd, where east has had its headquarter since its foundation in 1989. The town of Schwäbisch Gmünd has always been a strong support for east and has a long tradition of craftsmanship of precious metals. The Schwäbisch Gmünd Prize for Young Scientists was given for the first time 2017, but is going to be awarded every year to promising young scientist.

The mission of the European Academy of Surface Technology (east) is to promote Europe-wide science, research, training and education in the field of surface technology and related areas in order to contribute to the integration, understanding and friendship between European people and individuals.
