Global expert organization DEKRA has been hosting the DEKRA Awards together with WirtschaftsWoche, Germany’s leading business magazine, for many years, honoring services to safety. Criteria for nominations and the jury’s subsequent decision include the degree of innovation as well as the effectiveness, relevance and acceptance of the solution presented.
“The DEKRA Award draws attention to forward-looking ideas, innovations and initiatives designed to enhance safety in our everyday lives. It inspires and motivates and gives institutions and companies the courage to invest in safety,” said Stefan Kölbl, CEO of DEKRA e.V. and DEKRA SE, during the award ceremony. “The winners of the DEKRA Award 2018 have fulfilled precisely this requirement and proved that, even in this digital age, what are ultimately needed are smart people to develop new safety solutions.”
