Excellent research always requires excellent technical and administrative support to create the best working environment possible for the researchers. That is why the Helmholtz Association introduced the Helmholtz-Apprenticeship-Award in 2015, including prize money of 2.200 euros. The award is meant to honor outstanding achievements by trainees from one of the 18 Helmholtz centres which support scientific research.
