The prestigious "Diesel Medal" is awarded by the Munich based German Institute for Innovation Activities and Quality – Deutsches Institut für Erfindungswesen – in order to emphasize the importance of innovations. At the same time, it is meant to deliver a signal to the players in politics, the economy and the general society. The award honours outstanding achievements of individuals and enterprises.
The ECSEL project Productive4.0, which is coordinated by Infineon and is a core project in the ECSEL "Industry4.E" Lighthouse Initiative, was nominated in the category “Best Promotion of Innovation”. The ceremony, held at the Deutsches Museum in Munich, was attended by roughly 200 representatives from politics, business and the society.
On this occasion, warm congratulations go to Humboldt-Innovation GmbH, a subsidiary of the Humboldt University in Berlin, which acts as an interface between the political and economic spheres ensuring the transfer of know-how.
