Hanrieder Foundation for Excellence

The Hanrieder Foundation for Excellence was established in 2015 by Dr. Wolfgang Hanrieder under the auspices of the Max-Planck-Foundation. One of its aims is to support outstanding junior scientists in gaining valuable experience at leading research centers abroad, and thus to promote the international exchange of excellence. Whether these talents go into the world from a Max Planck background or whether, coming from far away, they become acquainted with this globally unique organization for basic research, they are to receive support in experiencing new perspectives, establishing contacts, and thus in setting the foundations for a successful international career.

„This strategy won me over: Deploying limited resources for optimal effect – also when promoting scientific topics and talents.”

Dr. Wolfgang Hanrieder


Hanrieder Research Fellowship @ MPP

For the first project grant to be awarded within the framework of a Research Fellowship, the founder and doctor of physics Wolfgang Hanrieder selected the Max Planck Institute of Physics (MPP) in Munich. The Hanrieder Research Fellowship enables excellent doctoral researchers and Masters students from Latin America to spend up to six months at the MPP in order to decisively promote their qualification in the field of theoretical or experimental high-energy physics.
