About Hector Fellow Academy

In the year 2013, one of the founders of the software company SAP Hans-Werner Hector established the Hector Fellow Academy with the objective to strengthen Germany as a worldwide renowned location for science and research, to initiate pioneering socio-political discourse and to contribute to the solution of global challenges. Members of the science academy are excellent researchers from the area of natural and engineering sciences, medicine, and psychology, who are appointed every year through the allocation of the Hector Science Award. The academy offers the Hector Fellows not only a platform to exchange with fellow scientists and to work on interdisciplinary research projects. It also set oneself to pass the knowledge and experience of the members to the next generation. To do so, the Hector Fellow Academy funds postdoctoral positions for alumni with an outstanding master’s degree and called the Hector Research Career Development Award to life.
