The LIfBi Team would like to thank the outgoing President of the Leibniz Association, Professor Karl Ulrich Mayer, for his extraordinary support throughout the process of institutionalization. Although Professor Mayer bade farewell in the literal and figurative sense (by removing his hat according to a popular German saying), the LIfBi Board of Directors is still hoping for a continued critical and constructive cooperation. Likewise, the LIfBi team would also like to offer their sincere congratulations to the incoming President, Professor Matthias Kleiner, on his new position, which plays a pivotal role for all 89 participating institutions of the Leibniz Association.
