Hall of Fame der deutschen Forschung

Every year, the Hall of Fame der deutschen Forschung honors scientists whose achievements have helped to ensure Germany’s future viability as a science and business location. The award was launched in 2009 by manager magazin.

Since 2015, the award has been presented jointly with Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany to continue to improve the relationship between science and business in Germany. The Hall of Fame der deutschen Forschung provides a unique platform for highlighting the economic benefits of these scientific achievements, thus presenting them to a wide audience.
