The Vlastislav Červený Student Prize is brought to EAGE by our Local Chapter Czech Republic, in collaboration with RWE Gas Storage CZ, Seismik, GImpuls and the Geophysical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences. Starting from this year, the 11th edition, the prize is entitled to Prof V. Červený, a former honorary member of EAGE, who died at the age of 90 in 2022 and devoted a large part of his life work to teaching young generations of geoscientists.
The Prize is a recognition of excellence in two categories: Best Master’s and Best Bachelor’s thesis.
The competition is open to all students from universities in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Austria and Slovakia. In order to be eligible, thesis works must be written in English, Czech or Slovak language and defended in the period between 5 October 2022 and 4 October 2023.
The deadline for applying is 13 October 2023.
For more information and applying please see the links below.
The organizer of the competition is EAGE Local Chapter Czech Republic (LC EAGE Czech Republic z.s., Kubišova 1265/8, 182 00 Prague 8, Czech Republic).
The competition is supported by RWE Gas Storage CZ, Seismik, GImpuls, the Geophysical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences and EAGE. EAGE contributes to this edition of the competition by providing funding via its PACE Event Support programme and part of the prizes. EAGE is not responsible for the organization of the activities related to this initiative.
