Dr Erich Frank, head of technology management and regulatory affairs at Flint Group, has presented Yvonne Lechner – from the German-Chinese double degree program for printing and media technology – with one of two scholarships awarded by Stuttgart Media University (HdM), financially supported by the government and selected companies.
Established by the German government under the patronage of Prof Dr Annette Schavan, German minister for education and research, the German Scholarship Program started in summer semester 2011. It aims to support talented and capable apprentices and honor excellent performance.
One of two awardees chosen from more than 30 applicants, Lechner’s course leads to a double degree as an engineer-bachelor of the HdM and of the Xi’an Technological University and teaches advanced knowledge of media technology as well as the Chinese language.
‘Since I was a little girl I’ve been fascinated by the Chinese language and culture. The fact that I also show interest in sciences and in painting in my spare time are the optimum conditions to combine all my interests,’ explained Lechner.
Flint Group added it is particularly interested in promoting a competent next generation in the subject of printing and collaborates on joint projects with the HdM in Stuttgart as well as other universities around the world.
