Lower Saxony’s Minister of Economics Dr. Bernd Althusmann and Lower Saxony’s Minister of Science Björn Thümler, together with Prof. Josef von Helden, Chairman of the Board of the Innovation Network Lower Saxony, once again honoured visionary ideas, cooperation stories and economic successes from Lower Saxony with the Lower Saxony Innovation Award on 28.9.2020. This year, a particularly strong connection to current social problems became clear: two of the three prize winners are working on solutions to overcome the corona pandemic.

“The development already shows the great potential of Lower Saxony’s locations to play a leading role in a pandemic platform in the future, which aims to be able to react much faster to infectious diseases with a pandemic risk in the future. The competencies for the very rapid development of drug candidates also against future virus pandemics were demonstrated using the example of SARS-CoV-2.”
