Prizes and Awards

The University of St.Gallen honors outstanding researchers with awards and prizes. Prizes and awards highlight special achievements. Premiums reward achievements and serve as an incentive. 

In order to make the social impact of its research more visible, the HSG has created the Impact Award. This award recognizes research with a clearly identifiable impact in practice. Up to three projects are awarded annually, one of which can have a concrete regional reference. The projects can come from all areas of research.

The HSG Latsis Prize is awarded annually at the Dies Academicus to a young researcher at the University of St.Gallen.

In 2022, the following three projects were selected for an Impact Award:

The Future of Work

The Corona pandemic has kept the world on tenterhooks since 2020. In addition to the fundamental economic and social challenges, there has been an abrupt change in the way companies work together: Working from home, virtual collaboration, and the increased use of digital communication tools gained enormous importance. Not only to maintain their own competitiveness but also out of social responsibility, companies had to find ways to support their employees to ensure long-term health and performance.

The "HSG Latsis Prize" is awarded annually, on the occasion of the "Dies Academicus", to a young and promising research talent at the University of St.Gallen. Completed and independent contributions which have great significance in terms of their practical relevance can be considered for this prize.
