An outstanding award – for Philip Wigge and for the IGZ
Philip Wigge, programme area head at IGZ, has been awarded a project by the European Research Council (ERC).
We congratulate Philip Wigge and his team for this great success. We know that this is a well-deserved result of hard work and great commitment. We will do everything we can to ensure that the new colleagues who will be working with us in the frame of the project have the best working conditions. We look forward to continuing to work together for the themes of our institute, and to contribute to the availability of healthy and safe food for all people, even in times of global change.
It is a great day for the Institute, and also for our many friends and supporters. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the ministries: Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kultur (MWFK) and Bundesministerium für Ernährung und Landwirtschaft (BMEL), who make our work possible through their funding and support. But especially, of course, congratulations once again to our colleague Philip Wigge!
We celebrate this day together!
Eckhard George, Director of Research IGZ
