The MAN Group will be the main sponsor of this year’s Diesel Medal, marking the 60th anniversary of Germany’s oldest innovation award. MAN and Rudolf Diesel, the man whose name the innovation award bears, share an inextricably linked history. At an early stage in his career as an inventor Diesel came into contact with Heinrich von Buz, at the time Managing Director of the Maschinenfabrik Augsburg, which became the M.A.N. Maschinenfabrik Augsburg-Nürnberg in 1908. From 1893 onwards, Diesel developed the diesel engine in cooperation with MAN engineers from Augsburg. The first prototype of the new engine ran independently on August 10, 1893. The breakthrough finally came in 1897, when the first fully functional diesel engine was presented to experts.

“In excess of 90 percent of all goods transported in the world are conveyed using the diesel engine: for example on gigantic container ships, by truck, or by rail. This shows just how unique Rudolf Diesel’s invention was and his high innovative capacity,” says Dr. Pachta-Reyhofen, Chief Executive Officer of MAN SE. “We are delighted that our support for the Diesel Medal will be honoring the inventor Rudolf Diesel and at the same time showing our commitment to innovation and its promotion.”

Dr. Heiner Pollert, Chairman of the Deutsches Institut für Erfindungswesen e.V. (German Institute for Inventions), which organizes the award of the Diesel Medal, adds: “With MAN we have succeeded in uniting a globally recognized corporate brand with the award of the Diesel Medal. This success will help us enormously in making our interest in the creative work of inventors and its successful commercial exploitation known to a large section of the population.”

The awards ceremony for this year’s Diesel Medal in the four categories “Best Innovative Achievement”,“Most Sustainable Innovative Achievement”,“Best Media Communications” and “Best Innovative Support” will be held in Munich in the Hall of Fame of the Deutsches Museum on November 29, 2013 before invited guests from politics and society, industry, and the media. You can find more information on nominations for the four categories at dieselmedaille.de/.
