August 12th, 2020 | by

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, RWTH Aachen University and the City of Aachen, in consultation with the Advisory Board of the Aachen Engineering Award, agreed to postpone the award ceremony to 2021. A specific date will be set at a later date. “We would have liked to have honored Sebastian Thrun for his extraordinary influence on technology in a ceremony in the coronation hall of the city hall in a few weeks‘ time. In light of the current conditions, however, we do not want to take any risks and inadvertently harm the participants,” explained the Lord Mayor of Aachen, Marcel Philipp. “We look forward to honoring Sebastian Thrun in the coming year and then allowing as many people as possible to meet this prizewinner in person under secure conditions,” emphasizes Professor Ulrich Rüdiger, Rector of RWTH Aachen University.
