Allianz Climate Risk Research Award

Research Award Compendium

The Allianz Climate Risk Research Award supports scientific research that improves our understanding of climate change-related risks. The compendium is a compilation of selected essays from participants of the 2017 and 2018 editions. 

The Allianz Climate Risk Research Award supports scientific research that improves our understanding of climate change-related risks. The 2018 Award focuses on the topic “Climate risk: real-time information and new technologies.”

The Award is intended to support researchers whose research focuses on:

  • Reducing the risk of extreme weather events that are intensified by climate change
  • Fostering resilience by applying technological solutions

PhD students who are in the final stage of their research and postdoctoral researchers who have recently finished their research, are invited to apply. We welcome individual applications from the fields of natural sciences as well as economic and social sciences.

Four finalists will receive a monetary award and will be invited to an Award ceremony at Allianz Headquarters in Munich in November 2018 to present their findings and take part in an interactive discussion with renown experts from both industry and academia.

In addition, Allianz will publish the ten best essays submitted as part of the application in a compendium.
