– that’s what the “Future Award” is all about, which was presented for the tenth time at the Future Convention in Frankfurt am Main. No less than four media design projects from Ravensburg were nominated this year. Johnny Berner’s bachelor project “nasys” now won the Future Award 2015 in the Health category.
More than 950 visitors came to the Future Convention at the Museum für Kommunikation in Frankfurt to learn about ideas and concepts for the future of business and society. 220 students from 64 universities in six European countries presented their 100 Future Award projects. Four future concepts from Ravensburg were among them: Lisa-Marleen Mantel’s digital privacy project “Hoax“, the critical wearable concept “Nimis” by Jasmin Urban and David Kormann, the first-aid app “Reanimate” by Alex Keil and Johnny Berner’s emergency assistance system “nasys“. His work was particularly convincing. The innovative system takes over the digital mission documentation in the rescue service and supports emergency paramedics situationally during the mission without taking away their focus on the patient. It thus won the Future Prize for Communication in the Health category, which is endowed with 1000 euros.
“In the tenth year of its existence, around 30 per cent more students took part in the Future Award than in 2014, which shows its special relevance for young talents and the economy as the only competition that does not require business cases but focuses on ideas, visions and concepts that promote interdisciplinary exchange and creative cooperation,” says Hans Joachim Wolff, Chairman of the German Association for Post, Information Technology and Telecommunications.
Patrons of the competition are in particular the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the UN-HABITAT Programme of the United Nations.
The presentation of the work and the award ceremony took place on 23 November at the Museum für Kommunikation in Frankfurt/Main.
