Qosmotec has been awarded the seal of quality „Innovative through Research” by the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft, a business community initiative promoting science and education. The Stifterverband honors companies that do active research as part of their business with this seal of quality . “In Germany there are 3.5 million enterprises, but only less than one percent participates in research – an extremely important group. Because only those who research are able to discover something new and create innovation and growth”, says the association on its webpage.
Qosmotec belongs to this small percentage. “We benefit from our close relationships to the University of Technology and the Academy of Applied Science in Aachen”, says Qosmotec’s Managing Director Mark Hakim. The current big research project that we are working on in co-operation with the chair for theoretical information technology is about developing radio propagation models for the Car-to-Car communication technology and applying them on our signal strength emulator QPER. This research project runs over one year and is funded by the German ministry of economics. “These kind of big projects, that we have done in a similar way in the past for other development areas, are of course highlights of our research activities. But apart from that, we offer regularly bachelor as well master theses to our apprentices and students”, explains Mark Hakim, how Qosmotec contributes to the education of young academics.
The seal of quality “Innovative through research” is valid for two years. More information can be found at www.innovativ-durch-forschung.de
