The basic concept of the award, namely to support young scientists but also musicians, was started by Hans-Joachim Köppe and his spouse Elisabeth Keck, who unfortunately died last year. Hans-Joachim Köppe ensured the continuation and implementation of the foundation’s goals and could thus award the prize for the first time this year.

With this prize Dr. Fernández-Huertas is supposed to support his own research activities, which are mainly dedicated to “Self-Sorting in Supramolecular Aggregates”, “Aqueous Self-Sorting”, “BODIPY Dye Aggregates and OPE-Bases Metallosupramolecular Polymers”.
