Prof. Herbert Reichl receives SSI Award 2010
Professor Herbert Reichl received the first Smart Systems Integration Award on 23rd March 2010 for his extraordinary contribution to the development of integration technologies for intelligent systems. The award was presented to Professor Reichl by the program committee of the Smart Systems Integration Conference and EPoSS, the European Platform for Smart Systems Integration as part of the SSI Conference 2010 in Como, Italy.
In his tribute speech, Prof. Geßner, Head of Fraunhofer ENAS and Chairman of the SSI Conference, singled out Prof. Reichl’s pioneering research in the development of microsystems and strategy development for intelligent system integration. “Fraunhofer ENAS was part of the Fraunhofer IZM until its establishment in 2008 as an independent institute. This period of time presented the fantastic opportunity to learn from Prof. Reichl's visionary style of leadership. In 2005, he decided to step down as Chairman of the European Microsystem Technology Conference. He thus gave us the chance to take on responsibility and develop new topics within the scientific community. This led to the start of SMART SYSTEMS INTEGRATION in 2007."
Professor Reichl is Director of Fraunhofer IZM and Head of the Forschungsschwerpunkt Microperipheral Technologies at the TU Berlin. His scientific output to date has been impressive, with more than 60 patent applications, over 950 scientific papers and numerous textbooks.
