Stifterverband’s “Research with Responsibility” Award
The Stifterverband Science Award comes with prize money of 50,000 euros and is presented on the recommendation of the Leibniz Association for outstanding research outcomes that are of particular relevance to society and highly practicable. The aim is to showcase scientific achievements and make them visible to the general public. The award is conferred every two years at the Leibniz Association’s Annual Meeting; the next award will be presented in 2024.
Prof. Jörg Overmann receives the award in honour of his scientific accomplishments in the field of the biodiversity of microorganisms as well as his dedication to create a fair benefit sharing during the scientific and economic utilisation of biological diversity worldwide.
