Kurt Zopf-Prize 2019

Prof. Tuulia Ortner, Prof. Hannes Winner, Prof. Norbert Christian Wolf und Prof. Michael Zichy were awarded the Kurt-Zopf Prize for the year 2019. This award honours high-ranking and internationally recognised publications from scientists at the University of Salzburg.

Dank einer großzügigen Hinterlassenschaft seitens Herrn Kurt Zopf kann an der Universität Salzburg jährlich der mit bis zu 10.000,-- Euro dotierte Kurt‑Zopf‑Förderpreis an Wissenschaftler*innen der Universität Salzburg vergeben und so deren wissenschaftlich herausragende Publikationsleistung ausgezeichnet werden.  

Die Ausschreibung für das Jahr 2019 zielte auf eine gesonderte Prämierung von Journalbeiträgen und Monographien der Fachgebiete „Geistes-, Kultur- und/oder Sozialwissenschaft, Rechtswissenschaft und Theologie“ ab. Erwartungsgemäß wurden wieder zahlreiche wissenschaftlich hochkarätige Publikationen von bereits renommierten Wissenschaftler*innen der Universität Salzburg eingereicht. Diese wurden von einer Jury bestehend aus hochrangigen und erfahrenen uni‐externen Fachexpert*innen begutachtet. Aufgrund der vielen eingereichten Publikationen und der Expertise der vergangenen Jahre hat die Jury angeregt, für das Jahr 2019 vier Förderpreise zu vergeben. Dementsprechend werden für das Jahr 2019 jeweils zwei Preise je Publikationsmedium verliehen.
