WE Heraeus Communication Programme for participation at conferences

Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Communication Programme of the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft e.V. for scientific communication between young generation scientists

Young generation scientists are one of the main target groups the activities of the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation are addressed to. Therefore, in 1989, the foundation together with the DPG established a programme that gives young physicists in an early period of their scientific career (Master, Diplom or PhD thesis) the opportunity to present their own scientific results to a censorious audience.

The communication programme 2024 provides financial support for active participation in following conferences:

Please refer to the following overview for the respective funding criteria in abbreviated form:


The Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft wants to express its thanks and gratitude for the generous support and assistance of young scientists by the Wilhelm und Else Heraeus-Stiftung. We hope that young physicists will continue to take the chance to communicate with scientists at the conferences – as already 41,900 young scientists have done before.
