- Stefan Grimme awarded Leibniz prize 2015
Prof. Dr. Stefan Grimme receives the Gottfried-Wilhelm-Leibniz-Prize for his outstanding research in the field of Theoretical Chemistry, as announced by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) on 10th december 2014. The Rector of the University of Bonn, Prof. Dr. Jürgen Fohrmann, complimented Prof. Grimme on this award which is considered as the "German Nobel Prize".
Thus, Prof. Grimme is already the fifth chemist of the University of Bonn to be honoured with this prize which is awarded annually since 1986 and is endowed with 2.5 million euro. The high quality of the chemical research at the University of Bonn, especially in the field of Theoretical Chemistry, is therefore approved again.
