The ceremony was presided over by Sabine Döring, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, and Robert Schlögl, President of the Humboldt Foundation. The award brings top international researchers to German universities and provides funding of up to five million euros for cutting-edge research.

One of the winners in the field of artificial intelligence is MiS Research Group Leader Sayan Mukherjee, who came to the University of Leipzig and MiS from Duke University in Durham.
