Competence-based technological advances

Budapest – At the 189th General Assembly of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, its Governing Board presented the Mór Wahrmann Medal to Oliver Schatz, Senior Vice President Technical of Robert Bosch Kft. The medal is awarded to outstanding members of the business community for their support of science, research and development. Oliver Schatz, who is the head of the Bosch Engineering Center Budapest, received the honour for his cooperation with the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and for his support of university and research-center programmes that have raised Hungary to an elevated place in research into global megatrends and development of automated driving.

“This award is a very great honour for me, and is down to the innovative work of talented Hungarian engineers. That is why I would first of all like to thank my colleagues for the enormous amount of work they have put into making this possible. I also owe thanks to the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the universities and schools that are collaborating with Bosch. Our work with them has resulted in increasing numbers of engineers with high-level professional skills, and this is essential for our common goal – shaping our all future with Hungarian talents”, said Schatz.

With nine Hungarian subsidiaries, the Bosch Group is the largest foreign industrial employer in Hungary, and its Engineering Center Budapest, with more than 2200 engineers, is the group’s largest R&D operation in Europe outside Germany and works on the most advanced automotive developments. The company’s future-forming technological projects and innovative solutions build on more than a hundred years of technical knowledge and experience. Bosch’s broad-based competences are a sound base for the continuous shaping of trends in the connected world and for the nurturing of a new technically-educated generation that meets the needs of the Hungarian labour market.

The Hungarian Academy of Sciences, through an endowment by Mór Wahrmann, has been honouring achievements in trade and industry since 1897. The Wahrmann Medal was re-established in 2003 to highlight the exemplary activities of businesspeople who have distinguished themselves in support of science and research.
