Honored by the Association of German Engineers Magdeburg

03.03.2023 -  

On October 8, 2022, the historic Art Nouveau hall of the Dorint Herrenkrug Parkhotel Magdeburg was the setting for this year's 27th Festival of Technology - the Ball of the Engineers of Saxony-Anhalt. A highlight of the evening was the honoring of three personalities by the VDI Magdeburg district association, which was introduced by a beam show.

Prof. Georg Rose, member of the board of the research campus STIMULATE and head of the chair for medical telematics and medical technology at the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg, was awarded the Gruson badge of honor of the VDI for his successful forward-looking interdisciplinary research activities in the field of medical technology. Klemens Gutmann (2nd from right), chairman of the VDI Saxony-Anhalt regional association, kept the arc of the laudation exciting until Prof. Rose (center) was presented with the prize. Prof. Jens Strackeljan (l.), Rector of Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg, also congratulated and presented a "Grusoni" cactus named after Hermann Gruson.

Just this year, Prof. Rose, together with a consortium of partners from industry and science, again succeeded in acquiring a project in the federal funding program "T!Raum", which is funded by the BMBF with up to 2 million euros per year for nine years. The goal of Magdeburg's T!Raum initiative, transPORT, is to develop an eco-center with science, high-tech business, and especially living and well-being ("W4"). The scientific and economic focus is to be on medical technology. For more information, visit the transPORT website.
