The Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize is the largest award in German research. The goal of the Leibniz Program is to improve the working conditions of outstanding scientists and scholars, to expand their research possibilities, to reduce their administrative workloads, and to facilitate the employment of particularly qualified younger scientists.
