Roland Wester paid tribute to the winners in his speech as "a pioneer in the field of ion chemistry and laboratory astrophysics. He has made in recent years with its basic research on ion-molecule reactions as well as with his astrochemical laboratory experiments made outstanding contributions. " Prof. Price has worked for 20 years at the Department of Chemistry at University College London. It simulates, among other interstellar processes in the laboratory and explored reactions to dust particles. These processes play an important role in the development of the interstellar medium and are ultimately essential for the evolution of stars. The Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger after (1887-1961) named medal is awarded traditionally at the biennial conference taking place at international führende researchers.
