Humboldt forging links with overseas researchers

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation has awarded €250,000 each to eight humanities researchers and social scientists to help them establish collaborations with German academics.

The Anneliese Maier Research Award funds collaborative work between established international researchers and scientists at selected German institutions. Three of the recipients are based in the United States, three in the UK, one in Spain and one in Belgium.

The foundation has also handed out three Georg Forster Research Awards, which enable international researchers to carry out projects at German institutions. The winners, each receiving a share of €60,000, are Turkish plant scientist Ismail Cakmak, Argentinian anthropologist Irina Podgorny and Cuban neurological diseases researcher Luis Velazquez-Perez. Each will move to Germany for between 6 and 24 months to work on development-related research projects.
