Ernst Awards

In recognition of R.R. Ernst and his essential contributions to applications of magnetic resonance in solution, solid state and imaging thereof, the Ernst Awards were established by the GDCh Division of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy. They are awarded annually, are worth 500 Euros each, and honor the work of up to three young scientists.

Felix-Bloch Lecture

Honoring Felix Bloch, this special award is given to a distinguished scientist in the field of magnetic resonance. Nominees - preferably young researchers - should have made a particularly impactful scientific contribution over the course of the last five years. The scope of the award covers all disciplines associated with magnetic resonance. The price committee consists of members of the FGMR Board. 

The award is worth 1000 Euro€s.

The awardee is supposed to give a total of four lectures. The first lecture will take place directly after the award ceremony at the EUROISMAR 2019 (August 25-30, 2019 in Berlin).

Albert-Overhauser Award

In recognition of Albert W. Overhauser's pioneering research, the GDCh Division of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy created this price which will be awarded in 2019 for the very first time. The Award honors outstanding scientific publications of postdoctoral reserahcers enriching the methodology, theoretical understanding, or application of magnetic resonance spectroscopy.

The award is worth 750 Euro.

The Albert-Overhauser Award 2019 will be presented at the EUROISMAR 2019 (August 25-30, 2019 in Berlin).

EUROMAR-Ernst Prize

The EUROMAR-Ernst Prize will be awarded at the EUROMAR 2018 in Nantes to recognize ‘recent beneficial applications of Magnetic Resonance’. 

The EUROMAR-Ernst Prize is intended to award achievements going beyond fundamental research, for groundbreaking applications of new or previously known techniques in all areas of magnetic resonance. It is intended for research published within the last three years, although the origins of the ideas and experiments may have been described in previous publications. In special cases, and at the discretion of the Prize Committee, the award may be for cumulative achievements over a longer period of time. The Ernst Prize is intended to be awarded to a single individual; however, it may be awarded to up to three scientists if the Prize Committee deems that their contributions to the development of the applications are of equal value. Former prize recipients are Alex Pines (2016) and Robert Griffin (2017).
The prize is worth 10,000 Euros; it is sponsored by the Bruker BioSpin Corporation, and is awarded annually at the EUROMAR conference.
