The Gimmler Logistics Foundation gGmbH awards an exam prize for the best thesis in the logistics and legal interface area. The prize itself includes a grant of 2,000 €. In addition, the award-winning work will be published as part of the Gimmler LOGiSCIENCE © series. To be eligible, applicants must have produced either bachelor theses, master theses, diploma theses, dissertations or similar works in the relevant logistic topics with contractual relation. This must not explicitly be a jurisprudential work. The combination of logistical and business administration with legal subjects is especially interesting.
Specifically, for example, topics such as quantity regulations, CIP rules, service level agreements or the consideration of liability or tax consequences of contract design alternatives. Examination of the contents of the exam is carried out in two stages: for a preliminary examination, the title, the structure, and proof of grade are sufficient. If a sufficient reference to the topic area of the exam price is determined by the prize committee, the complete thesis can be submitted. The award winners also agree to make the award-winning work of the Gimmler Logistik Stiftung gGmbH available free of charge for publication within a new foundation series in the sense of a simple, temporally, substantively and spatially unlimited and non-exclusive right of use.
