werner hermann


The sudden passing of Prof. Werner M. Herrmann in May 2002 was a great shock for his friends, colleagues and for everyone who regarded him as a mentor, a sounding board and a sparring partner.


Werner Herrmann was at the foremost a passionate, dedicated scientist, whose quest for excellence in his field was enhanced by his curiosity, his initiative and his drive. He has made significant contributions to his field through his innumerable publications and lectures and he was one of the founding members in the development of the International Pharmaco EEG Society (IPEG). He also served as the Main Editor, section Pharmacoelectroencephalography of Neuropsychobiology, the official journal of the IPEG.


The Werner Herrmann Memorial Grant has been established by PAREXEL International to encourage research in the field of neuropsychophysiology and to promote the knowledge of recent developments and advanced information of the methodology and applications of neurophysiological research in neuropsychopharmacology. The Grant of 5000 € (five thousand Euro) is offered to the best contribution made by a young researcher at each biennial IPEG Conference. Half of the grant is awarded to the winner for the contribution presented at the meeting (poster or oral communication) and the other half is given after a manuscript covering the initial contribution is accepted for publication in Neuropsychobiology.


The next Werner Herrmann Memorial Grant will be awarded at the 19th Biennial IPEG Conference in Nijmegen, Netherlands (2016)
