University Society awards Dissertation Prizes

On the 23rd of January, the Bielefeld University Society (UGBi) awarded Dissertation Prizes to young academics at Bielefeld University: the award goes to the best doctoral thesis of 2017 in each faculty. All 17 theses proposed by the faculties had received the highest classification of ‘summa cum laude’. This is the first time so many prizes have been awarded, and also the first time a prize winner has come from the Bielefeld School of Education (BiSED).


Die Preisträgerinnen und Preisträger der Dissertationspreise 2017 gemeinsam mit Prof. Dr. Martin Egelhaaf (Prorektor für Forschung, wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchs und Gleichstellung, 3.v.r.), Maria Unger (Kuratorium UGBi, 2.v.r.) und Jürgen Heinrich (Geschäftsführer UGBi, 1.v.r.).
The laureates and Prof. Dr. Martin Egelhaaf (Vice-Rektor, 3.f.r.), Maria Unger (Curatorship University Society, 2.f.r.) and Jürgen Heinrich (Secretary University Society, 1.f.r.).
With the first ever Dissertation Prize to the BiSED being awarded to Dr. Natalia Hofferber, the Bielefeld University Society is emphasizing ‘the great importance of teacher training and subject-specific educational research,’ says Jürgen Heinrich, the director of the University Society in the Plenarsaal of the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF). The fact that two prizes went to the Faculty of Linguistics and Literary Studies this year is due to the convincing arguments by the board member Professor Dr. Wolfgang Braungart.

The University Society has been awarding Dissertation Prizes since 1983. Each prize is worth 1000 euro and is sponsored by renowned companies in the region of East Westphalia-Lippe as well individual persons.

The event was moderated by Andreas Liebold. He presented the dissertation topics by discussing them with the prize winners. Maria Unger (board member of the University Society) awarded the prizes. Kanami Ito and Angelo Villari from the Hochschule für Musik Detmold accompanied the event musically on the piano.
