In the occasion of Dies academicus, the founding date of Leipzig University, the alma mater traditionally presents awards to personalities who have made outstanding contributions to the university.

In addition to the Leipzig University Medal, the transfer prizes in the field of knowledge and technology transfer are also presented once a year. With this award, the university honours the outstanding commitment of our scientists who apply knowledge gained in research and teaching and transfer it to business, politics, culture or civil society.

We take this opportunity to cordially congratulate Prof. Dr. Utz Dornberger from the International SEPT Competence Center at Leipzig University on the Special Award for Transfer in recognition of his work and achievements in the field of knowledge and technology transfer.
