Alexander von Humboldt Professorship

With a value of five million euros, the Alexander von Humboldt Professorship is the most highly-endowed research award in Germany and draws top international researchers to German universities.

Dossier

Anneliese Maier Research Award

The award was granted to world-class researchers in the humanities and social sciences from abroad whose academic achievements were internationally recognised in their research area. The award winners chose the people with whom they wanted to cooperate in Germany themselves, and their collaborative research lasted up to five years.

Research Cooperation with Developing Countries

The Humboldt Foundation supports developing and threshold countries in their endeavours to promote junior researchers and international networking as well as developing their own functioning science systems. For in a globalised world, a country’s prospects for growth, affluence and social harmony are inextricably bound up with scientific and technical progress.
