German Future Prize goes to Erlangen

Stand: 28.05.2024

After 2005, the prestigious prize, endowed with 250,000 euros, has once again gone to the Huguenot city.

The future is playing out in Erlangen: On Wednesday, the team led by Professor Michael Uder, Director of the Institute of Radiology at Erlangen University Hospital, and his colleagues from Siemens Healthineers, Stephan Biber and David Grodzki, were presented with the German Future Prize by Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier in Berlin. Together they developed the Magentom Free. This is a platform for magnetic resonance imaging with low field strength.Drei Männer in einer Werkhalle an einer Maschine.

Lord Mayor Florian Janik: "I would like to congratulate the team from Erlangen University Hospital and Siemens Healthineers on this fantastic award. The new platform for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is not only technically fascinating, it will also improve the lives of many people around the world. With this innovation, MRI will become an examination procedure that can also be used with fewer financial resources and technical possibilities. Vision and innovation have been brought together in an exemplary way in this project at our science and business location."
