Double award from the MPG: Prize for the MPIA Mechanical Workshop / Trainee Prize for Lukas Reichert
October 20, 2016
After 2014, the mechanical engineering workshop of MPIA was once again awarded this year by the Max Planck Society (MPG) with the prize for special commitments to vocational training. Furthermore, Lukas Reichert has received the trainee's award for his outstanding achievements in vocational training.
Trainer Award for Mechanical Workshop
Yearly the Max Planck Society awards three institutional training centers for their special commitment to vocational training. Again among the prize winners is the Max-Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA) with its precision mechanical workshop (Head: Armin Böhm, Supervisor for trainees: Stefan Meister). With this prize, the Max Planck Society and the prize committee would like to express their appreciation for the performance of all educators and trainers. The award is intended to highlight institutes that exceptionally support the training of young people based on the development of innovative training concepts, their intensity of care, special offers for cooperation with external partners, or by providing additional qualifications, for example.
Trainee Award for Lukas Reichert
Since 2007, the Max Planck Society has awarded every year the Trainee Prize for outstanding achievements in vocational training. With the prize, MPG recognizes not only the outstanding professional performance during the training, but also the personal development and the social commitment of the trainees. The prize has already been awarded several times to MPIA apprentices.
This year's award winner is Lukas Reichert from MPIA's mechanical workshop. He receives the award for outstanding achievements in the field of precision mechanics.
