On December 4 in 1948, Freie Universität Berlin was founded by students and academics. They wanted to learn, teach, and conduct research at the university without any political influence and they were supported in their efforts by the American Allies and Berlin politicians, including Ernst Reuter, then Mayor of Berlin.
Every year, the Ernst Reuter Day celebrates the founding anniversary of Freie Universität. On this occasion, Freie Universität honors distinguished junior researchers for their work. Most notably, the Ernst Reuter Prize, endowed by the Ernst-Reuter-Gesellschaft, is awarded to young scholars and scientists at Freie Universität for outstanding disseration projects.
Please note that the event will be held in German.
