Alfried Krupp Prize for Young University Lecturers
The Krupp Foundation awards the Alfried Krupp Prize to exceptionally talented young professors in natural science and engineering disciplines.
The prize has been presented annually since 1986 and is worth EUR 1 million, earmarked for personnel and material expenses. This funding gives the winners freedom to develop and realize new ideas early on in their professional careers.
The prize is named after Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach (1907–1967), the last sole proprietor of Krupp AG. His assets were bequeathed to a non-profit foundation on his death.
