Medals

Medals of Merit

These medals are awarded by the Presidium “for exceptional service to the ideals and good of the Academy”, and bear the portrait and name of the recipient. The medals have been awarded at irregular intervals since 1961. Thirty-two medals have been presented over the past 50 years to distinguished figures such as physicist Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker (1982) and biochemist Ernst-Ludwig Winnacker (2009).
