In 2022, Hapag-Lloyd will once again be presenting the Albert Ballin Awards for Globalization Research. The two prizes, each with a €5,000 purse, will be awarded to up-and-coming young academics and researchers whose research broadens and deepens our understanding of the opportunities and risks of globalization. With these awards, Hapag-Lloyd is recognising innovative and critical projects that use the social sciences, the humanities and cultural studies to investigate various processes and problems of globalization, thereby laying the groundwork for responsible action in the future.
The awards were first established to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of former Hapag director-general Albert Ballin on 9 November 2018. The Albert Ballin Research Awards will now be presented again in May 2022, when we will be celebrating the 175th anniversary of the founding of the Hamburg-Amerikanische Packetfahrt-Actien-Gesellschaft (HAPAG).
Applications for the 2022 awards will be accepted until 31 December 2021.
