Since 1990, the Umdasch Group has been supporting outstanding achievements in research and development through the Josef Umdasch Research Prize. The award was created by the company’s present owners Hilde Umdasch and Alfred Umdasch, who named the prize after their father, Josef Umdasch.
As a result of the cooperation with the World Summit Awards (WSA), which has been in existence since 2018, the Josef Umdasch Research Prize is increasingly aimed at start-ups, entrepreneurs and future-oriented thinkers around the globe who can inspire enthusiasm with an innovative project idea.
