AFMG Selected to Present at 9th ACE in Berlin
AFMG followed an invitation from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) to contribute to the 9th Americas Competitiveness Exchange (ACE). The OAS (Organization of American States) brought a high-ranking delegation from over 20 American countries to Berlin at the end of June.
The ACE opening event on June 27th started with a welcome speech delivered by state secretary Claudia Dörr-Voß in the “Eichensaal” room at BMWi. The delegation was then provided with insights into the German innovation system and the respective funding policy based on the strategy “from idea to market success”. Subsequently, AFMG´s managing director Dr. Stefan Feistel had the exclusive opportunity to introduce AFMG, talk about his experience with the program, and elaborate on how the company benefited from governmental support for some of its R&D projects.
The next items on the agenda were several site visits and other presentations before the day concluded with a social event at the famous PanAm Lounge overlooking the rooftops of Berlin.
AFMG represents innovative entrepreneurship that is characterized by the ability to transfer a scientific approach into innovative solutions and products of high market relevance. The company has published numerous papers and books and also holds multiple patents. Additionally, AFMG´s expertise is requested not only in the process of establishing new standards and regulations in the field of audio and acoustics, but AFMG is also frequently involved in research projects of leading companies in that industry. This is accompanied by 30 years of experience and a structured, modern development approach, resulting in a perfect mix of reliability and innovation.
“We believe we are a good example of linking academic science and practical application that profits from mutual learning and governmental support. This obviously was the main reason for being invited to ACE 9. It gave us the unique chance to create new networks and to share our approach to innovation. We are honored that we were asked to contribute to this event and want to express our gratitude to all involved.” - said Dr. Stefan Feistel, managing director of AFMG.
