Egon-Stahl-Award in Silver

On the occasion of his 60th birthday, Professor Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Egon Stahl donated a medal, a document and a monetary prize in order to recognize and promote young scientists working in the field of Pharmacognosy (Pharmaceutical Biology) and Analytical Phytochemistry.

As a rule, the silver medal and an award of € 3.000,– (at present) should be awarded to scientists up to the age of about forty who have published outstanding scientific work during the years after their graduation.
