The Award recognizes exceptional talents who engage in interdisciplinary, ground-breaking research in their respective fields and contribute to gender equality and diversity in science and academia.

The three shortlisted projects, referred to as the Winners, will be selected by a distinguished Jury and invited to participate in an in-person Award Ceremony and Gala Dinner in Berlin on 7 November 2024, as part of the International Fall Gathering hosted by Female Science Talents.
