We are happy to announce that DSPE will be awarding the 9th Ir. A. Davidson Award this year.  
Unfortunately last year’s award has to be postponed due to COVID, but this year we will be present on November 10 at the Precision Fair in Den Bosch.  

The Davidson award is intended to encourage young talent in precision engineering.   An engineer who has already started to make an acknowledged track record, in the 5-10 years of working experience.   Someone with a real passion and noteworthy devotion to the field of expertise.   Candidates are typically brought forward by companies / institutions in precision engineering, as a recognition of the remarkable added value of that person.   The final selection of the award winner will be made by a jury, based upon your input.  

The winner will be awarded:
– A trophy and certificate
– A cash prize of €250
– A nice ceremony in the spot lights for the winner and the company
And of course due attention is given in the media.  

Please think of who you would like to nominate from your network.  
Let us know as a respond to info@dspe.nl, including a short reasoning for the nomination.  
Due date for nominating is 20 st September.  

Feel free to contact us for any questions or remarks at info@dspe.nl.
