Bertha Benz Lecture and Prize Award

In honor of the innovative energy, visionary spirit and determination that Bertha Benz (1849-1944) demonstrated in proving that the early automobile could be driven for longer distances, the Daimler and Benz Foundation established a special event in 1987: the Bertha Benz Lecture and Prize Award. Female leaders from a wide range of fields are invited to speak on socially-relevant topics of their own choosing. In the course of the event, the Foundation awards the €10,000 Bertha Benz prize to a young female engineering student whose dissertation holds the promise of future societal benefits.
