HCHE Young Researcher Award
Science thrives on the ideas of young researchers. In order to promote the work of our doctoral candidates, the Scientific Advisory Board of the HCHE will award a prize every two years from 2021 onward for the best health economic paper by young researchers at the HCHE. In 2023, even three prize winners could be awarded.
We would be very pleased if this award supports the winner in his oder her further career and acts as an encouragement for further research.
Prof. Dr. Mathias Kifmann, core member of the HCHE, formulates the center's aim of the Young Researcher Award: to encourage young researchers to pursue constant curiosity, scientific development and research. The idea for the Young Researcher Award was born in the context of the activities surrounding the 10th anniversary of the HCHE.
Further details on the award, the submission of contributions and the process can be found here:
The next award ceremony is planned for 2025:
