EDA Achievement Award  
EDA Achievement Award   EDA Medaille

With the EDA Achievement Award, the edacentrum honors and rewards significant, excellent research and development contributions in the area of Electronic Design Automation that have been achieved by projects funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), under the “IKT 2020” research programs for information and communication technology.

Eligible contributions include those of an individual person or team which significantly contributed to the goals of the IKT 2020 research program.

Of particular consideration are those contributions that demonstrated substantial, quantifiable improvements in the design process and that achieved significant benefits in industrial applications.

 

Awarded annually since 2002, the EDA medal honours the achievements of an individual of special merit engaged in electronic design automation (EDA). The EDA Medal is awarded to only those individuals who have made a significant, lasting contribution to EDA development in Germany and in the world.

The EDA Medal is a mark of recognition, not a reward. Candidates are recommended by the edacentrum management board, and the winner is selected by the association’s steering committee. The medal is presented to the winner at the edaWorkshop in the spring of every year.
