On November 30, the hosts of the oldest German innovation prize, the Dieselmedaille, announced this year’s winners. The award, which is presented by the German Institute for Inventions and was co-founded in 1953 by Eugen Diesel, the son of the engine builder Rudolf Diesel, honors inventions and innovative companies that have successfully found their way into regional and international markets. Since 1953, the Dieselmedaille has been awarded to more than 400 inventors, including Wernher von Braun Gottlob Bauknecht, Hans Viessmann, Arthur Fischer, Anton Kathrein, Sybill Storz, Fritz Sennheiser, and the Nobel prize winners Herrmann Staudinger, Ernst Ruska and Manfred Eigen. Other honorees include the founders of SAP, Dietmar Hopp, Prof. Dr. h.c. Hasso Plattner and Dr. h.c. Klaus E. Tschira.
