INSTITUTE OF APPLIED PHYSICS - Celebrating the Zukunftspreis

Celebrating the Zukunftspreis

On 24/10/2014 time had come: colleagues of IAP and the companies Robert Bosch GmbH and TRUMPF Laser GmbH + Co.KG were celebrating together the awarded "Zukunftspreis des Bundespräsidenten". Context provided the exhibition of the winning project "Ultra-short pulse laser for industrial mass production" at the Deutsches Museum in Munich.

As well, the award money was donated to provide financial support for the creation of a contemporary interactive area for young and old visitors in the midst of exhibitions at the Deutsches Museum. The opening is scheduled for fall 2015, with attractive topics in optics, physics and engineering. Here, the personal doing of the visitors will be central - phenomena, objects and everyday life riddles should be explored quite plainly. The curiosity in these topics should awaken and hopefully produce future physics and optics enthusiasts.
After diverting speeches of the winners Stefan Nolte (IAP, Jena, Germany), Jens König (Bosch, Schwieberdingen), Dirk Sutter (TRUMPF, Schramberg) and others interesting tours through the museum were offered. The culinary finale of the celebration was at the Hofbräukeller.
