GHTC® - German High Tech Champions

This award was created by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in 2010 as a „Research in Germany“ project. It fostered outstanding technology developers – giving application-oriented German research a new face worldwide.

The nationwide competition focussed on three research fields:

Candidates presented their business cases to an international and interdisciplinary jury of experts judging them on originality, technical, financial and commercial viability, and on their communication skills. The Champions were honored at corresponding international events in Boston, Chicago, New Delhi, Lyon, Tokyo, Paris and Dallas.
