On December 3rd, 2018, the Cologne-based "Institut der deutschen Wirtschaft (IW)" celebrated the 13th Max Weber Award for Business Ethics at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Science. This year’s awardees are: Professor Laura Marie Edinger-Schons, Johanna Jauernig, Sebastian Everding, Julian Degan, Nicole Caroline Schneider and Victoria von der Leyen. The Award recognises young researchers’ outstanding academic work in the field of Business Ethics with the categories doctoral and postdoctoral research, graduate research, and undergraduate research. The jury consists of Professor Josef Wieland, Professor Ingo Pies and Professor Michael Hüther.
In his laudation, Dr Wolfgang Schäuble, President of the German Bundestag, emphasised that Max Weber’s economic-sociological approach is of enormous importance to this very day.
Professor Josef Wieland addressed the awardees in the category undergraduate research, Victoria von der Leyen (“Religion as an incentive for cooperation“) and Nicole Caroline Schneider (“The significance of the word ‘growth’ in political discourse in the context of sustainability”). He pointed out that both awardees had worked on topics that were highly significant at present and represented Max Weber’s still topical ideas at their best.
The Max Weber Award for Business Ethics is awarded to young academics for outstanding contributions to business and corporate ethics.
