a new research programme which focuses on the sustainable usage of biomaterials from forestry as nano-scaled components for functional, bio-based composites. In this way, Samyn aims to define new application areas for renewable, bio-based raw materials, for example in textile coatings or the sensor industry,

Dr. Yee Lee Shing (31), Psychology, Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin

The developmental psychologist Yee Lee Shing is researching the development of episodic memory over a person's lifetime. Her direct comparisons of children and older adults proved for the first time that components of episodic memory develop differently throughout our lives. These results are of lasting importance for developmental psychological research. As early as her doctoral thesis, Shing, who is known as an exceptionally ambitious and creative researcher, was able to make a substantial contribution to memory research and thus lay the foundations for her own research project. At the age of 31, Shing is an internationally recognised expert. She was offered a W2 Minerva position at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, which she took up at the beginning of 2012.

The Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize has been awarded annually since 1977. The DFG considers the award both as recognition for scientific achievements to date and as incentive for early-career researchers to continue to pursue a scientific career. As such, it enjoys a high standing. In a survey carried out by the "bild der wissenschaft" magazine, the most prominent research institutions named the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize Germany's third most significant scientific prize, after the DFG's Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize and the German Federal President's Deutscher Zukunftspreis. The award includes prize money of 16,000 euros for each winner, which is provided by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
