Diverse scientific strategies.
16 February, 2018
Recognising and supporting the work of young scientists working towards sustainable strategies for the future, the Audi Environmental Foundation and the Technical University of Munich have announced the winners of the seventh annual Sustainable Resource Management Award. The Foundation promotes technologies for the sustainable and environmentally compatible use of natural resources and supports research and development and this year Master’s degree scientists, Daniela Angelova and Diana Young received the award and accompanying 1,500 euros prize for their work on concepts for future-oriented urban development and more efficient biogas plants respectively.
“The theses of both scientists demonstrate impressively that the careful use of resources can have a major impact. They also provide answers to important questions of our time,” said Rüdiger Recknagel, Chief Executive of the Audi Environmental Foundation. Since its inception, the Audi Environmental Foundation has been involved in and supported a number of initiatives in addition to the awards. In 2016 it was recognised for its part in the ‘Columns of Diversity’ project by the UN, a project undertaken with the association of Species Protection in Franconia.
The Foundation has also recognised the work of scientists working diverse projects over many years. The ‘Smart HOBOS’ (HOneyBee Online Studies) project, saw a high-tech beehive on Audi’s production site in Münchsmünster fitted with state-of-the-art technology, adopting a completely new approach to research into the behaviour of these insects. While a bat information trail was opened in the Franconian town of Handthal.
