Newsletter 4/2018

Dear readers,

"We can only secure our academic freedom in the long run if we enter into a dialogue with society", stressed Hans-Christian Pape, President of the Humboldt Foundation, at the recent meeting of the Foundation's International Advisory Board in Berlin. Information generated by research provides an important foundation for this dialogue. Which is why we are pleased to once again report on the latest news from the Foundation in this newsletter. For example, which top researchers have been selected for a Humboldt Professorship and which research talents the Sofja Kovalevskaja Award has most recently lured to Germany. 

If you would like to receive more news from the Humboldt Network, simply subscribe to our Twitter channel too: it will keep you up-to-date non-stop with the latest news.

We wish you a peaceful and happy New Year 2019!
