GDA Young Talent Award

Young Talent Award of the German Datacenter Association

Data Centres and Digital Infrastructures

The German Datacenter Association's Young Talent Award honours outstanding bachelor's theses, master's theses and dissertations in the field of data centres and digital infrastructures. Due to the special importance of the topic for the industry, the special prize "Sustainable Data Centres" is also offered. This is selected from all categories.

The shortage of young professionals and skilled workers is currently affecting many sectors of the economy - including the data centre asset class. The current record growth in the area of digitalisation in Germany and worldwide is further exacerbating the need for highly qualified young professionals. 

The need for highly qualified young talent is becoming ever greater due to the record growth in the field of digitalisation. With our Young Talent Promotion Award, we put young talent and our industry in the right spotlight and support the award winners on their way to a successful professional life.

Anna Klaft |GDA Chairwoman


In 2023, the winners were again selected by an independent jury of experts headed by Prof. Dr. Peter Radgen, IER, University of Stuttgart.
