Mechanical design based on the design principles defined by Wim van der Hoek is very much alive. The Philips engineer and part-time professor
at Eindhoven University of Technology passed away early last year at the age of 94, but his name lives on in the prize named after him and his ideas
are still taught. The nominations for the Wim van der Hoek Award 2020 testify to this. The jury received a total of eight nominations from two
universities of technology and two universities of applied sciences for students who applied existing or new construction principles in their
graduation work. The award presentation, originally planned at the 2020 Precision Fair (cancelled), will take place at an alternative (online) occasion,
under the auspices of DSPE.
