Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prizes 2018

This year ten researchers – including five women and five men – will receive the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize, the most important award for early career researchers in Germany. The recipients were chosen by a selection committee in Bonn appointed by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The prizewinners were awarded with the €20,000 prize on 29 May in Berlin.
