Awards and honors of our group leaders and members:

  • We congratualate Prof. Dr. Dominik Heider (subproject A3) on the awarding of the Frauenförderpreis 2020.

    He was awarded for breaking down inhibitions about science subjects. For the promotion of women in the natural sciences, he launched the "Women in Science" programme, which aims to encourage female graduates to take the step towards research. In his own research group, Prof. Heider actively promotes the proportion of women. Both at the postdoc level and among doctoral students, this is 50%. The proportion of female staff is thus disproportionate.
