Since 1990 the Umdasch Group has been supporting outstanding achievements in research and development through the Josef Umdasch Research Prize. The award is named for Josef Umdasch, the father of the company’s present owners Hilde Umdasch and Alfred Umdasch, who initiated the prize. Today the prize forms an important part of the Umdasch Group Foundation, an initiative of the Umdasch Group. Its aim is to encourage the personal development of young people and to support initiatives which focus on the topics of education and knowledge transfer worldwide.
During 2018, the jubilee year of the Umdasch Group celebrating the company’s 150th anniversary, the Josef Umdasch Research Prize was offered by all three subsidiary companies. The winners were announced in March 2018. They are currently working on the implementation of their excellent ideas.
