Swiss scientist receives innovation prize

Professor Heinrich Meyr, a member of the board of Ascom.


A member of the board of the Ascom telecommunications company, Professor Heinrich Meyr, has been awarded this year's innovation prize by the Mannesmann Mobile Radio Foundation in Germany.

The Foundation writes that Professor Meyr was one of the first scientists who many years ago decided to concentrate his research work solely on future-oriented digital transmission technology and the computer-supported design of digital signal processing systems.

Currently, Meyr and his team are working on the next generation of digital communications systems that will display even more complex structures.

As a young engineer, Heinrich Meyr worked in the research and development department of what used to be the Hasler company, which merged in 1987 with Autophon and Zellweger companies to form Ascom.

After completing his doctorate at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and an assistant professorship at the University of Southern California, he was appointed head of Hasler's research department.

Since 1977, Meyr has held a chair at the Technical University of Aachen in Germany. He was elected a member of Ascom's board of directors in 1992.
