The award is a key signal for the Danube Cup team, indicating that the project is recognised, and that the partner institutions perceive the necessity for continued collaboration.
This honour’s importance is only greater because of the region where it was awarded. Regensburg’s city and region are part of one of the most significant economic areas in Bavaria and Germany. With a GDP of 18.4 billion euros (2019), the area is one of Germany’s fastest expanding regions. OTH Regensburg was established in 1971 and is now considered to be one Bavaria’s most progressive institutions, providing complete training options to 11.000 enrolled students, in the fields of technology, health sciences and business administration. Throughout the last few years, many successful spin-offs have emerged with OTH Regensburg’s support: such are ReCase GmbH, Scarabot Technologies, arrivesafe.app, and NEW Engineering GmbH. This is for sure an inspiring factor for the start-ups competing every year.
