The Competition

Passion for research, for innovative multimedia formats and for communication – Fast Forward Science is all about people who are not only passionate about science themselves, but who can also inspire others. Every year, we recognize the best video and audio content from young researchers and newcomers on social media.

Awards are given to contributions that contain current research, are prepared in an understandable and target group-oriented way and offer the necessary “wow” effect. Contributions that activate and involve their audience receive special points.

The Fast Forward Science online competition, which is endowed with a total of 9,000€, is a joint project of Wissenschaft im Dialog and Stifterverband and has been held annually since 2013. The partner of the YOUNG SCIENTIST AWARD is the Deutscher Zukunftspreis.
