Plus 3 Grantholders.
The key successes of our Plus 3 programme: Between 2010 and 2015, approximately 90% of successfull applicants have obtained professorships, more than half of them come from abroad, and a third are women – despite the fact that women represent only about a quarter of applicants. In this way, the Plus 3 programme serves in fact as a springboard during one of the most decisive career phases of young scientists.
Christian Hackenberger, the first Plus 3 grantholder, is now a W3 professor at the Leibniz Institute for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP) and at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. For his outstanding achievements, he was subsequently awarded, among other things, the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize by the German Research Foundation.
