Leibniz Prize Winners 1999 - Most Highly Endowed German Promotional Prize For,,Ten Scientists

Today, the Grants Committee of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) designated the 1999 winners of the prizes awarded under the DFG's Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Programme. Ten scientists will receive this prestigious German promotional prize which usually is endowed with DM 3 million. Scientists doing more theoretical work and who are therefore less in need of costly equipment will receive DM 1.5 million. The funds will be provided for research work conducted over a period of five years.

The aim of the Leibniz Programme which was launched in 1985 is to improve the working conditions of outstanding scientists, to increase their research opportunities, to reduce their administrative workload and to enable them to recruit exceptionally well qualified young scientific researchers. The prize winners enjoy the greatest possible freedom in applying these funds.

Among the numerous proposals for the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize the nominating committee of the DFG selected especially those candidates whose scientific performance could be expected to be enhanced significantly through additional financial support. This is the 14th time that the DFG has awarded the Leibniz Prize which is financed by special funds provided by the Federal and state governments.

About 180 proposals had been submitted by scientific higher education institutions, the Max Planck Society and previous Leibniz Prize winners. The scientists selected as Leibniz Prize winners 1999 are:

Professor Dr. Ekkard Brinksmeier (46), Production Engineering, University of Bremen (DM 3 million)

Ekkard Brinksmeier obtained his doctorate in mechanical engineering from the Institute for Production Engineering and Machine Tools in Hanover; from 1982 to 1992 he worked as a senior engineer and head of the production processes research centre associated with the chair of Professor Tnshoff in Hanover. He qualified for a professorship in 1991 and in 1992 was offered the chair for production processes i
