ThermHex is a finalist in the IQ Innovation Award Central Germany 2019. A jury from industry and science examined the 155 submitted applications for their degree of innovation and market potential and invited the best 27 to present their innovation in a lecture. From the circle of presenters, the first and second places in each of the five Central German clusters were determined.

Among the last ten companies is ThermHex Waben GmbH from Halle. In the Chemistry/Plastics Cluster, ThermHex entered the race with its Organosandwich, a novel sandwich material for automotive industry. Thanks to the innovative production process, the Organosandwich can not only be produced quickly and cost-effectively but also in an environmentally friendly way. Whether ThermHex is cluster winner or wins the overall award will be announced at the ceremony on 27 June 2019 in the Paulinum of the University of Leipzig.

The 15th IQ Innovation Award Central Germany and the local IQ competitions Halle (Saale), Leipzig and Magdeburg are endowed with prize money of around 70,000 euros.
