The Carl Zeiss Humboldt Research Award (Carl-Zeiss-Humboldt-Forschungspreis) is an annual award funded by the CZS. It is aimed at researchers in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines who wish to collaborate with specialist colleagues in the German federal states where the CZS provides sponsorship (Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Thuringia).

The Award honours researchers whose fundamental discoveries, new theories or insights have had a lasting effect on their discipline beyond their immediate research area, who contribute to promoting diversity in the STEM disciplines through their personality and work, and who can be expected to continue producing outstanding research in the future.

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation presents one Award per year to an internationally renowned academic from abroad in recognition of the winner’s entire previous academic record as well as their extraordinary potential. In addition, winners are invited to conduct a research project of their choice in Germany in close cooperation with specialist colleagues. The project duration of approximately 6 to 12 months may be divided into several shorter stays.

The Carl Zeiss Humboldt Research Award is conferred in conjunction with the conferral of Humboldt Research Awards.
