Leibniz Prizewinners 2004

This release is also available in German.

The Joint Committee of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) today named the prizewinners of the DFG's Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Programme for 2004. The most valuable research prize in Germany will go to eleven scientists and academics, two women and nine men. The 1.55 million euro prize funds research work over a five-year period and can be used flexibly by prizewinners, depending on their specific requirements.

The programme, set up in 1985, aims to improve the working conditions for outstanding researchers, to extend their research opportunities, to relieve them of administrative work and to make it easier for them to employ particularly qualified young researchers. Scientists and academics from all research areas can be nominated for the award. The DFG Nominations Committee considers the many suggestions which it receives for the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize and above all selects researchers who can be expected to particularly advance their scientific achievement with this additional funding. This year's prizewinners again include a number of younger researchers.

Today's decision brings the total number of prizes awarded under the Leibniz Programme to 218. Of these, 47 come from the humanities, 61 from the life sciences, 78 from the natural sciences and 32 from engineering. Of the 148 nominations received for 2004, the following eleven researchers won the Leibniz Prize:
