They explain the development of a new catalyst for the production of bioplastics or how artificial intelligence could strengthen consumer protection on the Internet - this year's winners of the KlarText Award for Science Communication are convincing with particularly successful, generally understandable articles about their doctoral theses. For this, the Klaus Tschira Foundation is awarding the 2022 KlarText Prize to six doctoral candidates. The winners of the KlarText Prize for Science Communication 2022 are:

  • Dr. Steffen Breinlinger (Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg) in biology,
  • Dr. Ruth Rittinghaus (RWTH Aachen University) and Dr. Simon Binder (TU Dresden) in chemistry,
  • Dr. Tim Tröndle (ETH Zurich) in geosciences,
  • Dr. Daniel Braun (TU Munich) in computer science
  • Dr. Sophia Gruber (LMU Munich) in physics.

The spectrum of topics covered by the award-winning work ranges from the catalytic converter mentioned above to online consumer protection. The physics laureate Sophia Gruber from the group of Professor Jan Lipfert used magnetic tweezers to determine the force with which corona viruses dock onto human cells to infect them. The short summaries of the award-winning articles and the infographic can be found here at a glance.
