The 2009 Leibniz Prize: Eleven new scientific discoverers
Date:12/11/2008

f the eleven prizewinners work at universities, demonstrating once more the excellent research that is done there. It was especially pleasing, from the DFG's point of view, that Karl Lenhard Rudolph, another former leader of an Emmy Noether independent junior research group and holder of a DFG Heisenberg Professorship, also won the Leibniz Prize. "The DFG's highly successful funding programmes for young researchers are increasingly becoming a stepping stone to first-class research careers and accolades," Kleiner pointed out.

The Leibniz Prize has been awarded since 1986 and is the most prestigious honour for researchers and scientists in Germany. "The winners of the Leibniz Prize are scientific discoverers," Kleiner said. "They look ahead and think ahead, they want to discover what lies beyond the horizon of knowledge and they have the courage to tread new ground." Along with the great prestige of winning, the recipients of the Leibniz Prize are awarded a significant amount of prize money usually 2.5 million euros and the exceptional freedom to use this prize money for their own research as they see fit over a period of up to seven years. Six former Leibniz prizewinners have gone on to win a Nobel Prize, including the evolutionary biologist Christiane Nsslein-Volhard, the physicist Theodor Hnsch, and the chemist Gerhard Ertl.

Today's announcement brings the total number of prizes awarded under the Leibniz Programme to 270. Of this total, 96 were awarded in the natural sciences, 75 in the life sciences, 58 in the humanities and social sciences, and 41 in engineering. Because the prize can also be shared in exceptional cases, the actual number of prizewinners is higher, with at total of 293 individuals having received the prize, 29 of whom were women.

The 2009 Leibniz Prize award ceremony will take place on 30 March 2009 at 3 p.m. at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Berlin.
