Universities and higher education, the humanities and economics: Our wide-ranging support for higher education across Düsseldorf

As a strong player in the state capital, Messe Düsseldorf is committed to sponsoring local higher education. As part of these efforts, 28 August saw the 45th drupa Prize go to Aceyla Bakir for her doctoral thesis written in the Philosophical Faculty of Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf. We discussed this with Dr. Christian Plenge, Head of Digital Strategy at Messe Düsseldorf, and Chairman of the Society of Friends of the Faculty of Business and Economics at Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences (HSD), as well as with Sabine Geldermann, Director of drupa, the world’s biggest trade fair for print technologies. An insight into partnership, promotion and top academic performances.
