    "The DFG's Leibniz Prize is awarded for truly first-class research. Like previous prizewinners, the recipients of the 2014 Leibniz Prize represent outstanding achievements in various fields of knowledge-driven research," said DFG President Professor Peter Strohschneider following the Joint Committee's decision in Bonn. The large number of outstanding nominees made the decision a difficult one, the President continued. "This year, too, we could easily have awarded more than the maximum of ten prizes while still applying the very highest standards," he said. He also emphasised that four of the new winners had benefited from DFG funding programmes, such as the Emmy Noether Programme and the Heisenberg Programme, during their research careers. "This clearly demonstrates the effectiveness of consistent, long-term support for early career researchers from one career stage to the next," Strohschneider added.
