Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prizes 2009: Six young researchers recognized for outstanding achievements
Date:3/18/2009

ave developed from an early age," said Professor Schorn-Schtte.

The Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize is intended to further promote the recipients' scientific careers. From the DFG's point of view it is both a form of recognition of past achievements and an incentive, and aims to help the prizewinners to continue pursuing their scientific career along the same course. With this objective, this prize is held in high esteem in the scientific community. In a survey conducted by the magazine "bild der wissenschaft", the major German research organisations voted the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize Germany's third most important research prize behind the DFG's Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize and the German Future Prize - the President's Prize for Technology and Innovation, which is awarded by the German President. Each Heinz Maier-Leibnitz winner receives 16,000 euros in prize money. The award is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

The award ceremony for this year's Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize will be held at 4 p.m. on 4 June in the Arithmeum Bonn, Lennstrae 2, in Bonn. Media representatives are welcome to attend the ceremony.

The recipients of the 2009 Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize in brief:

Dr. Andr Bornemann (36), geosciences, University of Leipzig

Through his work on micropalaeontology and palaeooceanography, Andr Bornemann already developed fundamental new theories in the geosciences, which were widely debated both nationally and internationally, at an early age. These theories concentrate primarily on the late Jurassic and the Cretaceous periods, and his research work addresses areas such as micropalaeontology, the carbonate budget and the conditions for the formation of black shale, through to palaeoclimate research. His theory that glaciation was possible during the Cretaceous, in spite of the high concentrations of greenhouse gases that existed at that time, which he developed in close cooperation
