Johannes Lehmann, Liberty Hyde Bailey Professor in the School of Integrative Plant Science’s Soil and Crop Sciences Section, was honored along with other recent winners of the Humboldt Research Award at a reception in Berlin June 23, 2022.
Sponsored by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, the award recognizes career excellence and funds opportunities to forge innovative collaborations with colleagues in Germany. "Humboldt’s ideal of a free, globally networked world of science is one which we again need to defend today,” said German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, addressing the award recipients.
“What I like about the Humboldt experience is that you meet colleagues from all disciplines, all career stages, and especially from all around the world in a way that fosters new connections,” said Lehmann, a faculty member in Global Development, who received the award in 2020. “The prize allows me to spend time to think fundamentally about how to do better and more relevant science.”
