Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prizes 2020
This year ten researchers – including four women and six 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 German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). They will each be presented with the €20,000 prize on 5 May in Berlin.
The awards ceremony for the 2020 Leibnitz Prizes will be postponed due to the novel coronavirus outbreak; a new date will be announced in due time.
