The Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize or in short the Leibniz Prize (complete German title "Förderpreis für deutsche Wissenschaftler im Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz-Programm der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft") is a research prize awarded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) every year since 1985 to exceptional scientists and academics working in Germany for their outstanding achievements in the field of research. The highest endowed research prize in Germany, it consists of a research grant of a maximum of 2.5 million euro, to be used within seven years to improve working conditions, expand research opportunities, provide relief from administrative tasks and assist in the employment of particularly qualified young researchers. Every year, ten Leibniz prizes are awarded. [1]
