Bauhaus.SOLAR Award

The Bauhaus.SOLAR Award is being awarded for the first time at the 3rd International Congress Bauhaus.SOLAR in Erfurt (Germany).

This award for young talent is being advertised Europe-wide by SolarInput e.V. and Solarvalley Mitteldeutschland e.V. and is aimed at students and young graduates. It honours superb architecture and design projects which demonstrate the innovative use of renewable energy.

Entry terms and conditions

Students from all European design and architecture courses as well as young designers and architects who graduated up to two years ago are invited to enter the Bauhaus.SOLAR Award competition.

The submitted projects (designs and realised projects) may not be more than two years old and must have been produced during the course of study or at the most two years after studying. Official languages of the competition: German and English


The Bauhaus.SOLAR Award is endowed with
Euro 15,000.00 in total and offers young talented designers and architects the chance to present designs, projects and innovation to the public and businesses.

Dates/Competition process

The competition is planned as a 2 stage process.
In the first round written explanations and graphic representations of the design idea are to be submitted in A4 format.
The jury will select 11 works from the submitted entries for the 2nd stage of the competition, which will be nominated for the Bauhaus.SOLAR Award.
For the 2nd stage of the competition the draft is to be present on two display boards in detail.
It is to be submitted by data media.
1st round submission date: 30.06.2010
2nd round submission date: 15.10.2010
The international jury consists of architects, designers and representatives from solar industry and research.

Award ceremony/exhibition

The prize and the 10 runners up prizes will be awarded at the Bauhaus.SOLAR Award Ceremony on 10th November 2010 in Erfurt at the 3rd international Bauhaus.SOLAR Conference.

On this occasion the award winning designs as well as the 2nd round projects will be displayed in a special exhibition.

Im Focus: Space observation with radar to secure Germany's space infrastructure

Satellites in near-Earth orbit are at risk due to the steady increase in space debris. But their mission in the areas of telecommunications, navigation or weather forecasts is essential for society. Fraunhofer FHR therefore develops radar-based systems which allow the detection, tracking and cataloging of even the smallest particles of debris. Satellite operators who have access to our data are in a better position to plan evasive maneuvers and prevent destructive collisions. From April, 25-29 2018, Fraunhofer FHR and its partners will exhibit the complementary radar systems TIRA and GESTRA as well as the latest radar techniques for space observation across three stands at the ILA Berlin.

The "traffic situation" in space is very tense: the Earth is currently being orbited not only by countless satellites but also by a large volume of space...

Im Focus: Researchers Discover New Anti-Cancer Protein

An international team of researchers has discovered a new anti-cancer protein. The protein, called LHPP, prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The researchers led by Prof. Michael N. Hall from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, report in “Nature” that LHPP can also serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of liver cancer.

The incidence of liver cancer, also known as hepatocellular carcinoma, is steadily increasing. In the last twenty years, the number of cases has almost doubled...

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

Im Focus: Alliance „OLED Licht Forum“ – Key partner for OLED lighting solutions

Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, provider of research and development services for OLED lighting solutions, announces the founding of the “OLED Licht Forum” and presents latest OLED design and lighting solutions during light+building, from March 18th – 23rd, 2018 in Frankfurt a.M./Germany, at booth no. F91 in Hall 4.0.

They are united in their passion for OLED (organic light emitting diodes) lighting with all of its unique facets and application possibilities. Thus experts in...

Im Focus: Mars' oceans formed early, possibly aided by massive volcanic eruptions

Oceans formed before Tharsis and evolved together, shaping climate history of Mars

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million...
