Anneliese Maier Research Award for Professor Kit Fine

The Phlox Group is happy to announce that Professor Kit Fine has been awarded the Humboldt Foundation’s prestigious Anneliese Maier Research Award, for which the Phlox group’s lead investigator, Prof. Benjamin Schnieder, nominated him.

The Humboldt Foundation grants up to eight Anneliese Maier Research Awards annually: nominations for the research award, named after the philosopher and historian of science Anneliese Maier, can be made for researchers from abroad from the fields of the humanities and social sciences whose scientific achievements have been internationally recognised in their research area and from whose research collaboration with specialist colleagues in Germany a sustainable contribution is expected towards the further internationalisation of the humanities and social sciences. Each award is worth 250,000 EUR, and award winners are expected to spend a period of up to five years cooperating on a long-term research project with the nominator. So, expect further Fine/Phlox interaction announcements in the future!

The Award will be given to Prof. Fine and the other recipients in a ceremony held at the University of Hamburg on 11 September. Prof. Fine will also give a keynote lecture.

The ceremony will be held in Ernst Cassirer Lecture Hall (Lecture Hall A), Edmund-Siemers-Allee 1, 20146 Hamburg, beginning at 19:00. Further details are available here.
