The Award is intended to support researchers whose research focuses on:

- Fostering resilience by applying technological solutions
PhD students who are in the final stages of their research and postdoctoral researchers who have recently finished their research, are invited to apply. Individual applications from the fields of natural and social sciences are welcome.
Four finalists will receive a monetary award and will be invited to an Award ceremony at Allianz Headquarters in Munich on the 27-28 October 2020 to present their findings and take part in an interactive discussion with renowned experts from both industry and academia.
