The year 2016 is dedicated to Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
2016 is the Year of Leibniz. On the occasion of the 370th birthday and the 300th anniversary of the death of the polymath Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz the Leibniz Association organizes a great theme year. The German science organization spotlights the diversity and timeliness of its 88 institutions under the headline "the best of all possible worlds" - a quote from Leibniz.
