Allianz Reinsurance launched the Allianz Climate Risk Research Award in 2017 as part of its activities to mitigate risks related to climate change, to increase resilience, and to promote scientific research.

The Award supports talented researchers whose research focuses on:

  • Reducing the risk of extreme weather events that are intensified by climate change
    Fostering resilience by applying technological solutions
  • A jury of six Allianz and external experts shortlisted four applicants to present their research at an award ceremony held on December 1, 2017 at the Allianz SE headquarters in Munich.

The finalists were:

  • Viktor Rözer – University of Potsdam, Germany (overall winner)
  • Elizabeth Tellman – Arizona State University, USA (first runner-up)
  • Bernhard Schauberger – Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Germany (second runner-up)
  • Erwin Nugraha – Durham University, UK (third runner-up)

The awards brochure provides further details about each of the finalists and their work.

The call for applications for the next edition of the Allianz Climate Risk Research Award is planned for July 2018.
