Dear readers,
The response to our new Anneliese Maier Research Award to promote the internationalisation of the humanities and social sciences, valued at 250,000 EUR, was impressive. No fewer than 90 nominees from 20 countries illustrate just how attractive international collaborations really are – and not just in the natural sciences. Read more about the three women and four men who have now been selected as award winners in this newsletter.
