Since 1978, the technical and scientific associations of the Werner-von-Siemens-Ring foundation honor young nature scientists and engineers. The young scientists receive a honor medal and a certificate, and are invited to join events of the foundation. The Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) recommended Stephan Krusche as young scientist for his successful research in the area of agile development and continuous software engineering.
The Werner-von-Siemens-Ring foundation followed the recommendation. Prof. Dr. Joachim Ullrich, the chairmen of the foundation, honored Stephan in addition to four other researchers in natural sciences as young scientist 2015 in a colloquium in Berlin. Stephan had the opportunity to present his research about agile development and continuous software engineering to the members of the foundation.
