Hector Fellow Academy

The Hector Fellow Academy is a young academy of sciences. It offers a platform for networking, interdisciplinary exchange, and mutual inspiration to the laureates of the Hector Science Award. In addition, the Academy supports promising young researchers.



The Hector Fellow Academy was founded in 2013. Today, this network consists of 23 professors and 19 young scientists working in the areas of natural and engineering sciences. New research topics and innovation are instigated by bringing together these outstanding scientists across institutions and scientific disciplines. 


Multidisciplinarity as a Fundamental Principle:

  • Network of top-level researchers from natural sciences, engineering, medicine & psychology
  • Cooperation across institutions 
  • Research in interface areas 
  • Interdisciplinary exchange & mutual inspiration
  • Impulses for innovative research approaches


The main concern of the Hector Fellow Academy is the promotion of interdisciplinary exchange between its members, who work together across research institutions, disciplines, and research fields. The Academy members are the Hector Fellows - professors of STEM-subjects - and young researchers supported by the Hector Fellow Academy.
