HONORS & AWARDS
Together with its partner WirtschaftsWoche, Germany's leading business magazine, DEKRA has been organising the DEKRA Award for many years.
This year, the jury of experts awarded prizes for outstanding achievements and best practices in three new categories: "Safety", "Security" and "Sustainability". In addition, DEKRA once again honored young companies with promising ideas/concepts in the "Startups" category.
Droniq won first place in the "Safety" category with its U-Space Reallabor Hamburg project.
Jury: DEKRA invites experts, department heads and people responsible for specialist areas from different service divisions. In the first round, around ten experts evaluate, in the second round the seven-member jury from politics and business. Both panels judge the applications in the three categories according to: Effectiveness, Efﬁciency/Simplicity, Degree of Innovation, Sustainability, Transferability and Acceptability.
