The Gutenberg Research College (GRC) annually awards the Gutenberg Research Award to outstanding international researchers. The GRC is continuing the tradition of the Graduate School of Excellence "Materials Science in Mainz" who initiated the Gutenberg Research Award in 2006 and granted it to outstanding researchers in the field of materials science. In 2012, the responsibility for the Gutenberg Research Award has been transferred to the GRC, who will be eliciting proposals from all faculties of JGU.
The Gutenberg Research Award 2019 has been granted to the French historian Corine Defrance during the annual celebration of the GRC on May 6.
