The award, which was presented for the 25th time this year, was presented to Maulide in Vienna. The Club of Education and Science Journalists honours the science communication work of the Portuguese professor of Organic Synthesis at the University of Vienna. The selection, which has taken place annually since 1994, is intended in particular to honour the efforts of researchers to make their work and their discipline comprehensible to a broad public and thus to raise the reputation of research. Maulide thinks that scientists are responsible for explaining why they do something and why it is important for society. The OeAD congratulates Maulide on the award.
