The German Chemical Society (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker - GDCh) and the German Bunsen Society for Physical Chemistry (Deutsche Bunsen-Gesellschaft für Physikalische Chemie) invite proposals for the Paul Bunge Prize 2024.
The prize is awarded annually by the Hans R. Jenemann-Foundation and is named after Paul Bunge (1839–1888), the most important maker of precision balances in the second half of the nineteenth century.
The Paul Bunge Prize honours outstanding research publications on all aspects of the history of scientific instruments. The prize is endowed with 7.500 Euro. It is awarded for either individual books or papers published within the last five years or for lifetime achievements. Submitted works may be published in English, German or French.
Applications and proposals should include the publications to be considered, a curriculum vitae and a full list of publications. The Advisory Board of the Hans R. Jenemann Foundation will decide on the prize winner.
Submit your application or nomination, including cover letter, CV and list of publications, by 30 September 2023 via the online form at www.gdch.de/paulbungepreis or https://www.gdch.de/gdch/stiftungen/hans-r-jenemann-stiftung/formular-paul-bunge-preis.html.
The award ceremony will take place in Gießen on March 21 to 22, 2024, on the occasion of the conference of The History of Chemistry Division of the German Chemical Society.
