Leobener graduate successful at ÖWGP doctoral award

For the third year in a row, Kunststofftechnik Leoben can rejoice: Dr.mont. Maximilian Tonjec was able to convince the committee and secured the third prize at the ÖWGP Doctoral Award.

The ÖWGP Doctoral Award is intended to promote young researchers and their scientific work. With this goal, the prize has now been awarded for three years. The ÖWGP - organizer of the award - is an association of professors from Austrian universities with the aim of promoting science and research-led teaching in the field of production engineering. (see website of the ÖWGP - oewgp.at).

This year's award ceremony took place again during the ÖWGP spring meeting with PhD colloquium, where PhD students from the partner universities presented their research work. This year - due to corona - unfortunately via videoconference. Thematically, contributions could be submitted in these categories: production processes/manufacturing technology, product and material sciences and organization. Maximilian Tonejc, graduate of Polymer Engineering and Science Leoben, won the third prize of € 1,000.00 with his presentation Opportunities and Challenges of Bound Textiles in Fiber Plastic Composite Processing.  

During his doctoral studies, Tonejc worked as a research assistant at our Institute for Processing of Composites, and since May 2019 he has been working as a Process Engineer at Heliovis in Wiener Neudorf. He successfully completed his doctoral studies in spring 2020.
