Prizes awarded in the 2002 Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Programme

The Grants Committee of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) announced the prize-winners in the 2002 Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Programme today. Twelve scientists are awarded Germanys most highly endowed promotional prize. Grants to the tune of three million Deutschmarks (1.55 million euros) are being awarded to researchers requiring a greater amount of apparatus. More theoretically oriented research is being funded with 1.5 million Deutschmarks (775,000 euros) for each project. The funds, which are being provided for a period of five years, can be used flexibly by the researchers according to their requirements.

The aim of this programme, which was set up in 1985, is to improve the working conditions of outstanding scientists and scholars, to extend their opportunities to engage in research, to relieve them of administrative tasks and to make it easier for them to take on specially qualified junior scientists and scholars. Researchers from all areas of science and the humanities can be nominated for the prize provided that their work so far demonstrates excellence. Funding via the Leibniz Programme is only awarded on the basis of a recommendation. All academic higher education institutions, the heads of the DFG review committees, the Max Planck Society and some other selected institutions as well as prize-winners of previous years can hand in proposals.

With its decision, the DFG nominating committee for the Leibniz programme has above all selected those scientists and scholars of whom it expects that additional funding will raise their performance. With todays decision, the total number of scientists and scholars supported by the Leibniz Programme has increased to 197. Out of these, 43 are from the humanities, 54 from the bio-sciences, 72 from the natural sciences and 28 from the engineering sciences.

Out of the 128 proposals submitted for the 2002 programme, the following scientists and scholars have been chosen as Leibniz prize-winner
