Every year, the Scientific Working Group of the University Professors of Plastics Technology (WAK) honors the best scientific work in plastics technology in order to document important advances in the science and technology of plastics. Four innovative companies in the plastics industry provide prizes with different topics. OECHSLER donates the OECHSLER Prize for the topic "Methods and Approaches for the Development and Design of Plastic Components". This year, the prizes were awarded at the K-fair – we congratulate Ms. M. Sc. Isabell Bagemihl and Mr. Dr.-Ing. Oguz Celik!
