Frankfurt Prize for Environment and Sustainability

The Frankfurt Prize for Environment and Sustainability is awarded for excellent dissertations in the field of sustainability and environment to graduates of Goethe University.  Bachelor and Master students as well as recent doctoral graduates from the natural and life sciences as well as from the humanities/social sciences can propose their dissertations. The prerequisite is that they deal with issues of ecological sustainability and make a contribution to the scientific understanding of human-environment relations. Since 2020, the prize has been announced by a board of trustees consisting of members of various departments at Goethe University and financed primarily by the GRADE Center Sustain of Goethe University. Since 2023, the prize is awarded during the Academic Ceremony of the Department of Earth Sciences in the summer semester.
