Young Talent Prize

Hamburg Aviation Young Talent Prize

promotes young talents with innovative ideas

The "Hamburg Aviation Young Talent Prize" was established by Hamburg Aviation to foster talented young people with innovative ideas in northern Germany’s aviation industry. This plays a long-term role in maintaining the competitiveness of the Hamburg Metropolitan Region as a centre of aviation and keeping well-qualified academics here.

Participants can look forward to the very best networking opportunities within the aviation cluster as they come into direct contact with member companies. Hamburg Aviation thus supports young professionals as they make the move from academic training to career.

This year, prizes will be awarded not only for final theses in the "Bachelor" and "Master" categories, but also for work on the topics of "Sustainable Aviation" and "Sustainable Cabin". The award is supported by Airbus Operations GmbH, Krüger Aviation GmbH, Lufthansa Technik AG and Treo Labor für Umweltsimulation GmbH.
The winners of the Hamburg Aviation Young Talent Award will receive prize money of 1,500, 1,000 or 500 euros, respectively, as well as free participation in next year's Hamburg Aviation Forums.

The conditions of participation can be found here!

Runway clear for two new categories in the field of sustainable flying
This year, for the first time, applicants will have the opportunity to apply specifically for the "Sustainable Aviation" or "Sustainable Cabin" categories.  The "Sustainable Aviation" category has been awarded as a special category of the Young Talent Award since 2020. Here, the jury awards sustainable ideas that could make flying and the cabin more sustainable. Lightweight and above all natural materials, cradle-to-cradle approaches in production - the range of impulses is wide and the significance just as high, because the aviation industry needs to rethink.
The prize for the two new categories is being awarded with the kind support of Krüger Aviation. The Barsbüttel-based family business is a thought leader and world market leader in the manufacture of plastic components for aircraft cabins. The innovation center of the medium-sized company has its focus completely on ecology and sustainability and is working on solutions for the aircraft cabin of tomorrow.

Application phase 2023
The application phase is open until May 01, 2023, 23:59.
The basic requirement for participation is that either the supervising company or the university must be based in the Hamburg metropolitan region.

The Hamburg Aviation Young Talent Award will be presented at the 65th Hamburg Aviation Forum in October 2023.
