Demography Prize for Young Scientists 2006/2007 PDF Print E-mail

Demography Prize: Increasing the Birth rate in Germany within the framework of a Liberal Society 

In 2007, the Institut für demografische Zukunftsfähigkeit [Institute for a Better Demographic Future] will award the first Demography Prize for Young Scientists valued at €10,000 €. This money is donated by Stiftung Apfelbaum - Lernprojekt für Ko-Evolution und Integration [Appletree Foundation - A Learning Project for Co-evolution and Integration].


Aim of the competition

The Demographic prize for young scientists is an important contribution to improving public consciousness on demographic themes. The competition, the announcement of the winners and the eventual publication of the winning entries will all serve to expose people to themes that are important to the Institute for a Better Demographic Future (idz).

The prize will encourage discussions about demographic change, give it a scientific base, and highlight different ways today’s decision-makers could deal with it. The idz would like to increase the numbers of dissertations and theses written on this subject by raising awareness of the theme at an early point in time.

The idea is that by writing a thesis on the subject, a lifelong interest in the topic is created. In France, every child knows the total fertility rate of the French population, in Germany however the demographic consciousness is underdeveloped. This is what needs to be changed.  

Award ceremony 

The awards ceremony took place on November 9, 2007 within the Symposium “Ways to More Children in Germany” at the Government Offices of Saxony in Berlin.
