Double success at Hans List Fonds

Double success for VIRTUAL VEHICLE at this year’s Hans List Fonds awards: With Christiane Essl and Enzo Harrer, two up-and-coming researchers were awarded. Christiane Essl was awarded a scholarship worth 5,000 euros for her doctoral thesis at TU Graz entitled “Analysis and early detection of falling automotive lithium-ion batteries”. Enzo Harrer won a prize of 3,000 euros for his master’s thesis “Vehicle Simulation: Dependence of System Optimisation on the Parameters of Co-Simulation using the example of a Mild Hybrid Vehicle”.

The Hans List Fondswas established to promote innovative, outstanding master’s theses and dissertations in the field of the development of combustion engines and drive technology as well as related areas. Essential criteria for the selection of the funded theses are the degree of innovation, the benefit for the environment and the practical applicability.

In recent years, researchers from VIRTUAL VEHICLE have repeatedly been able to convince the jury, most recently Bernhard Fischbacher for his research on the Tomographic Optical Ammonia Detector.
