In November 2019 we reported here about the NeoVitalSensor project; now it was officially honored with the Edmund Optics Educational Award in the "Gold" category on March 4, 2020 in Abbe Center of Photonics.
In his opening speech in presence of about 30 guests, Prof. Thomas Pertsch emphasized the importance of interdisciplinary and cross-institute cooperation for the successful transfer of technologies into concrete applications:

"I am particularly pleased that a young research team is being honored here, whose exceptional commitment and initiative were the essential basis for the award-winning project. I am sure that the award not only honors their courage for the highly interdisciplinary and cross-locational cooperation, but also gives the team further incentive to continue their highly relevant research".
The result of this interdisciplinary project idea also convinced the jury of the Edmund Optics Educational Award. In the future, one could imagine to further pursue the technology behind the "NeoVital" sensor and to transfer it into a marketable product together with the project team, said a speaker of the optical component manufacturer at the award ceremony.
