The Danubius Award was created in 2011 by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW) and the Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe (IDM) with the intention to honor persons with extraordinary achievements in their scientific activity and output in relation to the Danube Region.
It is complemented with a specific price for young scientists – the „Danubius Young Scientist Award“ and granted to 14 young scientists - one in each country that is part of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region [Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Romania and the Ukraine]. The award seeks to highlight the scientific work and talent of young researchers and enhance the visibility of the scientific community in the region: Moreover the award encourages young scientists to engage themselves in the scientific examination of the multifaceted issues and questions specifically related to the Danube Region.
We are especially happy that this year’s Danubius Young Scientist Award was awarded to the leader of grid-side development activities within 3Smart -- doc. dr. sc. Tomislav Capuder from University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing.
