Lise Meitner Award Winners 2020

Every second year the Max Planck Institute for Informatics awards the Lise Meitner Award Fellowship. This postdoctoral grant supports excellent female computer scientists in their careers, giving them the opportunity to develop their scientific ideas without exertion of influence. It consists of a two-year tax-free research fellowship and business expenses.

For the strech of the next two years, up to four young female researchers in computer science are given the opportunity to pursue their research with financial help from our institute.
