Succesful - and young!

Dieter Rampacher Prize

Each year the Max Planck Society awards the Dieter Rampacher Prize to its youngest Ph.D. candidates usually between the ages of 25 and 27 for their outstanding doctoral work. The purpose of the prize is to provide an incentive for young scientists and researchers to work on their Ph.D.. The award was first endowed in 1984 by Hermann Rampacher, a Supporting Member of the Max Planck Society, in memory of his brother, Dieter Rampacher, a physics student at the TH Stuttgart, who was killed in action in 1945 at the age of 20. Since 2011 Carsten A. Rampacher, the sponsors son, who is also Supporting Member of the Max Planck Society, finances the prize.
