DFG announces recipients of 2013 Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize
Date:5/7/2013

This news release is available in German.

This year's recipients of the most important prize for early career researchers in Germany have been announced. The selection committee appointed by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) have chosen nine researchers, four women and five men, to receive the 2013 Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize. This year the BMBF has increased the prize money from 16,000 to 20,000 per prize. The number of recipients also increased, with only six prizes having been awarded in previous years. The awards ceremony for the 2013 Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prizes will be held on 3 June in Berlin.

The higher number of awards and the increased prize money reflect the excellent reputation of the prize, which has been awarded annually since 1977. In a survey carried out by bild der wissenschaft magazine, the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize was voted the third most important research prize in Germany by the leading research institutions after the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize, presented by the DFG, and the Deutscher Zukunftspreis, awarded by the German Federal President. The DFG sees the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize as both recognition and an incentive to early career researchers to continue pursuing a path in research.

This year's recipients are:

  • Christine Hentschel, Sociology, Humboldt University of Berlin

  • Lena Maier-Hein, Medical Informatics, German Cancer Research Centre, Heidelberg

  • Nuno Maulide, Organic Chemistry, Max-Planck-Institut fr Kohlenforschung, Mlheim

  • Nicole Megow, Discrete Mathematics/Computer Science, Technical University of Berlin

  • Thomas Pfeifer, Physics, Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, Heidelberg

  • Holger Johannes Pletsch, Astrophysi
