2016 Humboldt Alumni Award for Innovative Networking Initiatives
This year marks the eighth time the Humboldt Foundation has singled out innovative network ideas of Humboldt Alumni for a Humboldt Alumni Award with the aim of fostering academic and cultural ties between Germany and the Alumni’s home countries and strengthening their collaboration in the respective regions. One of the awards is specifically meant to support and promote initiatives for networking female researchers. It is intended to strengthen the career paths of female scientists and scholars on a long-term basis and encourage more female researchers to take part in the Humboldt Foundation’s support programmes.
Each award comes with up to €25,000 and is funded by the German Foreign Office. The Humboldt Alumni Awards were presented to this year’s winners on 6 July 2016 at the Humboldt Foundation’s Annual Meeting in Berlin.
