20 November 2008. The winner of the Evonik European Science-to-Business Award 2008 has been elected. An international jury, in which the ES-HSG was represented by its Executive Director, Dr. Matthias Straetling, awarded the prize to the young British scientist Dr. Paul Dalby for his project on the “Biocatalysis for Chiral Amino Diols”.
General Management Course at ES-HSG
Besides the prize money of EUR 100,000, the winner receives a full grant for a General Management Course at the Executive School of Management, Technology and Law of the University of St.Gallen (ES-HSG). The objective of Evonik’s innovation award is to promote the conversion of scientific projects into marketable products and to encourage young researchers to dare to take the step from the laboratory into business.
Economic conversion of scientific research
“We are proud to join forces with Evonik to contribute towards the promotion of application-oriented research; attending one of our executive education programs will help Dr. Dalby wit the economic conversion of his scientific research,” said Dr. Straetling on the occasion of the award ceremony.
