Federal President’s Prize

Discover how ideas are turned into success at our exhibition on the German Federal President’s Prize – an annual award for outstanding technological and scientific innovations.

  • Adults, Young people

The German Federal President’s Prize is awarded annually for outstanding technological and scientific innovations. It honours projects that transform basic research into marketable products.

The guided tour begins with a look at the criteria by which the prize is awarded. It then moves on to some of the award-winning inventions, such as the production of tiny chips with the help of EUV lithography, the “Panda” robot assistant or the new material carbon concrete. Finally, the development of micro-electronics is presented in more detail.

When will this event take place?

Discover which activities are taking place by checking our daily programme, which is published at around 9.20 each day. Our programme changes daily and includes guided tours, demonstrations, science shows and hands-on activities for individual visitors and small groups of up to five people. All programme events are held in German. They begin either directly where the activity is set to take place or at a guided-tour meeting point in the relevant exhibition.
