Educational support recognised!

Rohde & Schwarz wins European Educational Support Award at the 2012 Elektra Awards

Rohde & Schwarz’ longstanding support of European Universities has been recognised at the 2012 European Elektra Awards ceremony in London with the company winning the Education Support Award. The award, which is organised by the Britain's leading electronics news title Electronics Weekly, is judged by a panel of independent judges.

Rohde & Schwarz has supported European Universities for many years with technical support, generous discounts, equipment loans, student placement schemes, prize giving’s and donations. The company also has a sponsored lab program offering an additional level of support. Phil McCluskey, Rohde & Schwarz UK’s University Programme Manager explains: “Our sponsored lab program recognises the value of time when it comes to actively engaging with our University partners. For example, by participating in Industrial Liaison schemes, providing letters of support for grant applications and helping to enthuse the next generation of students with technology presentations, relevant teaching materials and access to our experts.”

Referring to the company’s success, Frank Mackel, Managing Director of Rohde & Schwarz UK commented: “This award recognises Rohde & Schwarz’ University programme, the Elektra Awards gives valuable peer recognition for our support for teaching laboratories and research departments – the future, as we see it, of the European electronics industry.”
