Physics Nobel Prize goes, among other things to Prof. Reinhard Genzel from the Max Planck Institute in Garching
On the decision of the Nobel Committee announced today to award this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics, among others to Prof. Reinhard Genzel, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching, explain the education and research policy spokesman for the CDU / CSU parliamentary group in the German Bundestag, Albert Rupprecht, and the responsible rapporteur Andreas Steier:
Albert Rupprecht: “We congratulate Prof. Genzel and his team at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching on this outstanding award. The scientific achievement in detecting the black hole in the center of the Milky Way is impressive. Highly precise scientific methods and excellent international collaboration have made these groundbreaking results in astrophysics possible. With its decision, the Nobel Committee underlines the outstanding importance of basic research, which we have been supporting in Germany for many years, for our lives. With the Pact for Research and Innovation, we have created framework conditions for our science location that are unique worldwide. Germany is becoming more and more of a magnet for the best scientists. We want to continue on this path to success and further expand our international visibility and attractiveness. “
Andreas Steier: “The Nobel Prize for Prof. Dr. Reinhard Genzel is the culmination of a series of forward-looking research results from the past decades. The principle of academic freedom is firmly anchored in our company and with the Pact for Research and Innovation we have created top conditions in an international comparison. From 2021 on, the ten-year term will create important planning security for research. During this period, the federal and state governments are investing around 120 billion euros in non-university research institutions. As in the past, funding here is to grow by three percent every year. Thus, science has ideal conditions in our country. “
