Deutz launches the “Deutz Greenfield Award”: students and young researchers may submit their ideas for the future of sustainable mobility in the off-highway sector until May 17, 2024. The Award recognizes outstanding academic work that demonstrates practical solutions for reducing environmental impact and promotes the development of sustainable mobility solutions for commercial vehicles. 

To mark its 160th anniversary, Deutz is additionally offering a special design prize. According to the motto “Revolutionize Agriculture”, participants are invited to redesign the classic Deutz D30 tractor in an innovative futuristic design. 

Promoting research and development in the field of low-emission drive solutions is crucial to creating a sustainable future and breaking new ground,” says Deutz CEO Sebastian C. Schulte. “With our 160-year history, which is characterized by technological innovations and further developments, we want to offer young, committed talents a platform to actively contribute to mastering the challenges of tomorrow together with us.” 

Entries will be evaluated by a top-class jury on their degree of innovation, technical sophistication and positive impact on industry and the environment. The top three entries and the special design prize will receive a total of over €10,000. The award ceremony will take place in July 2024 during this year’s edition of the prestigious #neuland congress in Aachen, Germany. 

The “Deutz Greenfield Award” is aimed at students and young researchers. Interested parties can find more information and the application form on the official website.
