The Frankfurt based Mechanical Engineering Industry Association, VDMA says it uses the trade fair for technical textiles once again as an opportunity to honour successful young engineers. At the trade fair, five students will be awarded prizes of the Walter Reiners-Stiftung (Foundation) in the categories dissertation, master and seminar paper for their outstanding and creative achievements.
