On July 25th 2017 the award ceremony of the science and innovation award took place in the historic city hall of Kiel. It was a graceful event with great musicians and well-disposed guests. But best of all was the laudation of Prof. Dr. Thomas Bosch, in which great honor was given to us. We could not be happier to be in such excellent company with Prof. Dr. Ruth Schmitz-Streit and Prof. Dr. Roland Eisele. And even the mayor of Kiel had us on his Facebook page!- So, what more can we achieve?
