Otto Hahn Award

Otto Hahn Award

The Max Planck Society provides one recipient of the Otto Hahn Medal each year with the opportunity, following on from a stay abroad, to head a small research group (former Otto Hahn Groups) at an MPI of their choice with a research project specifically designed for that purpose, thus enabling a young scientist / researcher to continue his/her career in Germany.
