Beagle Award

To honor the scientific and social merits of PhD students.

As Darwin was supported on his worldwide trip by his boat ‘HMS Beagle’ from 1831 to 1836, the Beagle Award is dedicated to supporting young scientists at the beginning of their career. It is an appreciation of the scientific work and social commitments that are of importance to modern scientists.

Since 2011 it is bestowed by the IPK Board of Directors and the PhD Student Board on an annual term at the Institute’s Day of IPK.
