2016 is the 300th anniversary of the death of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. In addition, the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Society, which was founded in Hannover in 1966, will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its foundation. 2016 is also the year of the Tenth International Leibniz Congress. The youngest to celebrate an anniversary will be the Leibniz University Hannover, which has borne the polymath’s name since 2006 and will thus be celebrating its tenth anniversary.
Events are planned across the world to celebrate the Leibniz Year 2016. This website offers an interactive platform for all those interested and will inform you of forthcoming events.
