Award Winners 2017

MCED Award for Innovative Contributions to
Ecological Modelling

We are extremely happy to inform that in 2017 the number of applications with excellent quality again very high. The jury consisting of the book editors, representatives of the Young Modellers and the President of the Ecological Society of Germany, Austria and Switzerland (GfÖ) evaluated all applications according to novelty of the approach, contribution to ecology and ecological theory and bridging the gap between science and application. From the high number of very excellent applications dealing with a wide set of modelling approaches and a multitude of research topics the jury in a close decision finally awarded Johannes Radinger from the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB), Berlin Germany (new affiliation: Institute of Aquatic Ecology, Universitat de Girona, Spain) the first prize for 2017.

We cordially congratulate the winners for 2017:
