DEKRA is seeking entries for its 2017 Awards, which recognize the best projects, processes, and solutions in Germany in three categories – safety in transport, safety at work, and safety at home. The company's contest is done in partnership with WirtschaftsWoche, a leading German economics magazine. Companies and initiatives can apply until Sept. 15, 2017.

Information and application forms are available at www.dekra-award.de.

"DEKRA has set itself the task of creating greater safety, even in a digital world that is becoming increasingly complex," said Stefan Kölbl, chairman of the Management Board of DEKRA e.V. and DEKRA SE. "To do so, we have established a global network of expert services and laboratory facilities for the digitalized future. As the global partner for a safe world, we are seeking and providing long-term support to outstanding ideas, initiatives, and processes that help make the world a safer place."

For the DEKRA Award, a panel of internal and external experts will identify best practice projects across the country that make a sustainable contribution to improving safety among all the applications based on a list of criteria that focus on effectiveness, simplicity, efficiency, innovation, sustainability, transferability, and acceptance. The Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy is a patron on the award, with the award ceremony will take place Oct. 24, 2017, in Düsseldorf.

Previous winners have included companies such as Airbus, Axa, Eaton Industries, and Volkswagen.
