Congratulations to Professor Gottfriend Otting on being awarded the Humboldt Research Award in 2010.
Every year, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation grants up to 100 Humboldt Research Awards to internationally leading researchers of all disciplines from abroad in recognition of their academic record to date.
The award amount is €60,000. Award winners are also invited to conduct a research project of their choice at a research institution in Germany in cooperation with specialist colleagues there. The award enables a total stay of between six months and a full year, which can be split into multiple stays.
We strive to offer our guest researchers individualised support and funding. Amongst the benefits available to award winners are invitations to numerous events and the opportunity to attend language courses. Our alumni sponsorship measures flexibly support every Humboldtian's individual journey through life, in both their careers and their future collaborations.
