Löhn Award - Steinbeis Foundation´s Transfer Award
The Löhn Award - Steinbeis Foundation`s Award is bestowed for outstanding projects involving competitive technology and knowledge transfer between science and business. Special consideration is given to projects that have been exceptionally well executed and completed.
The success of a project is measured principally by the quality of the actual transfer process, the transfer result and identifieable transfer potential. Key features of the transfer process are quality, speed, efficiency and effective collaboration between the partners. The project´s transfer potential and success determine the value of the project for all participants and thus decide the business success for both knowledge supplier and recipient (Steinbeis Enterprise and customer).
The Löhn Award - Steinbeis Foundation`s Transfer Award was initiated and first conferred in the year 2004 by the Steinbeis Foundation in honor of the unique achievements of Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. mult. Johann Löhn. In 1983 it was Löhn who started turning Steinbeis into the global technology transfer company it is today, setting up the private Steinbeis University Berlin in 1998, which embodies the very principles of transfer: knowledge and action.
