What does an integrated management system look like in the future? Whether technical, staff-focused or organisational approach – anyone who deals with integrated management as a part of a research project can apply for the ConSense ScientificAward until 16 January 2022. 

The interdisciplinary ConSense ScientificAward 2022 recognises and awards young academics in Germany, Austria or Switzerland who are completing either their bachelor, master or engineering diplomas as well as PhD or MBA theses. Submissions can be in German or English. 

With the ConSense ScientificAward we want to emphasize the vitality and acceptance of quality management as well as to offer graduates a forum to present their work to an expert audience and to exchange ideas with like-minded people.

To be entitled to participate, it is sufficient to submit a final thesis (bachelor, master, engineering diploma, PhD or MBA) that has been or will be published in Germany, Austria or Switzerland after December 2019.

A distinguished, independent jury will evaluate the theses submitted to us. The evaluation criteria include innovation potential, theory, real-life relevance, benefits for the industry, environment and society, economic efficiency as well as the form of presentation.
