Back in May, Daniel Fritsche was awarded the SAMPE Germany Innovation Prize for his master's thesis " Development of a phenomenological superposition principle for the determination of fatigue properties for short glass fibre reinforced thermoplastics at high frequencies". The innovation prize is awarded for outstanding scientific study, bachelor's, diploma, master's or doctoral theses that deal with innovative material applications, new processing methods or future interesting material combinations in the field of composite materials.
As a prize winner, Daniel Fritsche also qualified to participate in the 37th SAMPE European Students Seminar, which took place in Hamburg from 15-17 November. Fourteen selected students from nine countries were invited there to present and defend their award-winning work to an international jury of experts. Daniel Fritsche came second and was awarded "Master Honorable mention" by the jury. In addition, he had the opportunity to present his research to the professional audience in the poster exhibition and to follow a series of lectures from industry and research. In recognition of his research, SAMPE will enable the awardee to travel to the next Europe Conference, which will be held in Madrid.
