The award is intended to help raise students' awareness of resource conservation at an early stage. This is important to initiate a sustainable paradigm shift and use microelectronics to make a significant contribution to saving energy and thus reducing CO2-emissions.

Prof. Albert Heuberger, Chairman of the FMD Steering Committee and Spokesman of the Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics
