Rössler Prize

The Rössler Prize is an award for outstanding young ETH professors in the expansion phase of their careers. Worth 200,000 Swiss francs in research funding, it is ETH Zurich’s most valuable research award. It has been made possible by a donation of ETH alumnus Dr. Max Rössler since 2009.

Max Rössler studied mathematics at the ETH Zurich, earning a doctorate in orbital calculations for aerospace. After a research stay at Harvard University, he returned to ETH as a senior scientist and lecturer at the Institute for Operations Research from 1967 to 1978. He later worked in wealth management. In 2013, he was awarded the title of Honorary Councillor by ETH Zurich.
