Antje Boetius receives award

  • 04.23.2019 | Awards

    Antje Boetius receives the Leibniz Ring Hannover 2019.

    Since 1997, the Leibniz Ring Hannover is awarded to personalities or institutions that have “attracted attention through outstanding achievements or set a special example through their life’s work.” It is named after the universal scholar Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. Among the members of the Board of Trustees is News Anchor Jan Hofer.

    On April 23, the Presse Club Hannover announced that the Leibniz Ring Hannover will be awarded to Hector Fellow Antje Boetius in 2019. In its statement, the Board of Trustees describes Boetius as an “outstanding scientist, researcher and discoverer”, who not only conducts research with far-reaching ecological significance, but at the same time is committed to the public dissemination of the discoveries.

    This is also observable in the form of the Hector Fellow Academy Symposium 2020, in which Antje Boetius is significantly involved. The annual symposia aim to place current scientific issues in a socio-political context. Lectures by renowned speakers from science, politics and business will build bridges between the research topics of the Hector Fellows and the central challenges of our time.

    The award ceremony is expected to take place on 21 October 2019 in Hanover.

    Congratulations to Antje Boetius!
