Young Vision Award

The Russian-German student contest Young Vision Award is a joint social initiative of Wintershall and Gazprom International. The contest is organized by two companies in order to bring together young students and experts from Germany and Russia. The aim is to foster exchange of ideas in the area of oil and gas production and to create an intercultural communication platform.

Every year since 2013 companies select an important task for the oil and gas branch and invite students to present their solutions in order to make oil and gas production more efficient and environmentally friendly. All contributions are carefully examined by an international jury, which is also nominated every year according to the contest task. The authors of the best ideas are invited to the contest finals to present their solutions. The jury decides on the best presentation and awards the winners with an opportunity to experience practical work at an oil and gas production field during the internship provided by the two companies. Moreover, the winner project gets evaluation by one or more international experts.

Competition task for 2018 – how can we utilize our E&P knowhow to create new business opportunities in times of Energy Transition and Decarbonisation?

Currently enrolled in a Bachelor's or Master's degree program and maintaining student status in fall semester 2018 are invited to apply.

The deadline for applications is May 1, 2018.
