Computing and chemistry prizes awarded

Katharina Zweig of the University of Kaiserslautern has been recognised for creating a “unique” socio-informatics course that brings together research, teaching and social engagement.

The Stifterverband, an association of German research funders, announced on 20 June that Zweig was the 2017 winner of the Ars Legendi faculty prize for teaching in the engineering and computer sciences.

Her interdisciplinary socio-informatics course is the first of its type in Germany, bringing technology assessment to the fore and connecting it to society and other subjects for the first time, according to the jury. She will receive the €25,000 prize at a ceremony in Weimar on 6 July.
