Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Meisel honored with Steinbeis Award

Special thanks for the level of commitment you do not witness every day: In December, Steinbeis bestowed the Steinbeis Award to Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Meisel, the retired rector of Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences and member of the Steinbeis Board of Trustees.

Steinbeis honored Karl-Heinz Meisel with the award for outstanding contributions during many years of collaboration, particularly in establishing the first joint transfer company between a university and Steinbeis. In his position as rector of Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences, Meisel played a central role in the foundation of Steinbeis Transferzentren GmbH, also based at the university. The collaborative enterprise now forms an umbrella over more than 30 Steinbeis Enterprises, which are actively involved in concrete research and consulting projects.

Aside from the shared activities of technology transfer at the university, Meisel has been a member of the Steinbeis Board of Trustees since 2006 and has provided reliable and professional support with ongoing development of the Steinbeis Network.
