The Löhn Award judges have honored the outstanding work and projects of Professor Dr.-Ing. Jürgen van der List at the Steinbeis Microelectronics Transfer Center (TZM) in Göp-pingen with a special award.
Between 1995 and 1997, Jürgen van der List was deputy vice chancellor at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences. This was followed by a period as vice chancellor between 1997 and 2007. In 1991 he founded the TZM and has been instrumental since then in the development and expansion of the TZM in Göppingen.
The two men leading the TZM were later joined by Professors Dr. Bernhard Schwarz and Dr. Rainer Würslin and company CEO Edgar Grundstein Dipl.-Ing. (FH). Today, the center can look with pride on its own premises, constructed in 2002, and now employs a workforce of 120. While the TZM initially spread its net very widely in the fi eld of electronics development, nowadays the main focus is on the area of “automotive bus systems – especially FlexRay” and on special software developments. In the last few years, it has generated superb quality and achieved great success by deve- loping, producing and marketing its own products in the form of analytical and testing tools for the industrial development of FlexRay bus systems.
Jürgen van der List and his colleagues at the Steinbeis Transfer Center have rendered outstanding service in the area of tech- nology transfer through their consistently excellent results and a large number of successful transfer projects in particular with small and medium-sized enterprises.
