2010 Recipient: ** Martin Grötschel**

Vice President, Konrad-Zuse-Zentrum für Informationstechnik Berlin (ZIB)

Professor, Technische Universität Berlin, Institut fur Mathematik, Germany

__Citation__: In recognition of his visionary, indefatigable, global leadership in application-driven mathematics research. The most concrete realization of his vision of mathematics as an indispensable ingredient in technological progress is the Berlin institute MATHEON, which he founded in 2002, and which, as director for its first seven years, he guided to a new, internationally recognized model of a mathematics research center. MATHEON has not only engaged and supported hundreds of researchers and solved problems coming from a wide spectrum of industries, but it has also carried out highly successful outreach and educational programs. Grötschel has also served the German and international mathematical community in many other ways, including as President of the German Mathematical Society, Vice President of the Zuse Institute, lead organizer of the 1998 International Congress of Mathematicians and, currently, Secretary of the International Mathematical Union. His service on many prize committees includes SIAM's Dantzig, Wiener, and Kleinman prizes and The John von Neumann Lecture.

**Martin Grötschel**studied mathematics and economics at the University of Bochum. In 1973, he entered the University of Bonn as Research Assistant and obtained his PhD there in 1977 in Economics and his Habilitation in Operations Research in 1981. From 1982 to 1991, he was Professor at the University of Augsburg and Chair of Applied Mathematics. He has held his current positions at TU Berlin and ZIB since 1991. His mathematical research interests include optimization, discrete mathematics, and operations research. He has deep interest in applications of mathematics and has been engaged in more than twenty projects with industry in areas such as telecommunications, electronics, software, logistics, traffic, transportation, and production technology. He was a winner of the SIAM/MPS George B. Dantzig Prize in 2001. He is a SIAM Fellow.
