The distinction of outstanding scientific achievements is an important component of the promotion of science and research. Science organisations, companies, foundations and associations grant numerous prizes of this kind every year.

Heidelberg University announces these national and international research prizes regularly and invites faculties as well as scientists and scholars to nominate suitable candidates. Research prizes which can be applied for by self-nomination are announced regularly by the Research Division through the INFOR-News Information Service.

* Announcements for the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize and the Hector Science Award are issued by the Rectorate.
