DGG CEO Max Limper wins Fraunhofer’s Hugo Geiger Prize 2018

28.02.2019 by DGG

We are happy to announce that our CEO Max Limper has just been awarded with the first prize at the Hugo Geiger Prize 2018! This most prestigious award for outstanding PhD theses at the Fraunhofer society has just been given to Max in recognition of his thesis entitled “Automatic Optimization of 3D Mesh Data for Real-Time Online Presentation”. During Max’ time at Fraunhofer, his work has resulted in the first versions of our RapidCompact software (although, back then, it was still called InstantUV).

The Hugo Geiger Prize, worth 5,000€ for the first place, is donated by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy. It was therefore formally handed over to Max by Bavarian state minister Hubert Aiwanger during the annual Fraunhofer Netzwert Event on Tuesday evening. The prize is named after former Bavarian Secretary of State Hugo Geiger, who was the patron of the inaugural assembly of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft on March 26, 1949.
