The Reinhold Baer Prize 2020 is an international prize of €1000 for a young researcher working in group theory. The prize is supported by the no profit association AGTA - Advances in Group Theory and Applications and Aracne Editrice and is dedicated to Reinhold Baer (1902-1979), a great German algebrist who built an important school of group theory. The selection committee of the prize consists of three members, which are nominated by the AGTA Council; the Committee selects the winner, and can additionally mention a second deserving candidate. However, the Committee may decide not to award the prize, in case of absence of adequate scientific applications.
