I received the Otto Hahn Medal, the dissertation award of the Max Planck Society, for my dissertation on “Corporate Innovation – The Role of Scientific Discoveries, Taxation and Antitrust”. The dissertation makes important contributions to the analysis of innovation processes, in particular the impact of competition on innovation outcomes.

The Max Planck Society has been awarding the prize for outstanding scientific achievements, named after the „father of nuclear chemistry” Otto Emil Hahn (1879–1968), since 1978. The prize is endowed with 7,500 euros and is intended to motivate young talented scientists to pursue a research career.

The Otto Hahn Medal for Young Scientists was awarded at the Annual Meeting of the Max Planck Society on 22 June 2022 in Berlin.
