During the 125-year-celebration at the Institute at the Katzenburgweg, the directorates of EQAsce and the International FoodNetCenter (Prof. Dr. Petersen, FNC / Dr. O’Hagan, EQAsce) two awards have been given to students. Mrs. Boothe and Mrs. Labalestra – both graduates – got a price for writing the best Master Thesis 2018/2019. Both have gotten a job offer after finishing their Master Thesis and internships at the respective companies in the field of quality management. Mrs. Boothe now works at the EQAsce founding member AgriZert; Mrs. Labalestra works in the department of quality assurance at FCF Holding which belongs to EatHappy ToGo GmbH and which runs several sushi-shops at REWE-supermarkets which again is an EQA-approved partner enterprise.
Furthermore, several anniversary guests from different universities received the acknowledgement as EQAsce-lecturer for their scopes (most of the time more than one scope). Classes and examinations that students take – offered by these professors – can be collected in credit points on a Digital Academic Career Card on behalf of the lifelong learning concept by EQAsce. The acknowledgement as EQAsce-acknowledged lecturer was given to Prof. Dr. Martin Hamer, Hochschule Bonn-Rhein Sieg / Prof. Dr. Sebastian Jarzebowski, University of Warsaw, Poland / Prof. Dr. Judith Kreyenschmidt, University of Bonn and Hochschule Geisenheim / Dr. Andriy Kubarenko, University of Bonn / Prof. Dr. Ema Maldonado, University of Champingo, Mexico / Dr. Anette Rexroth, University of Bonn / Dr. PD Julia Steinhoff-Wagner, University of Bonn.
For EQAsce it is considered to be of high importance that students get practical experience within quality-, risk- and crisis-management through experienced persons. Thus, special requirements are put up for internship-offers of companies. Mentoring people at these companies need to proof QM-education. The acknowledgement for EQAsce-mentors for external (out of university) internships was given to Mr. Christian Bode, RVG Werne / Mr. Dr. Oliver Breuer, GIQS / Mrs. Dr. Sophia Dohlen, Tee.Gschwendner / Mr. Dr. Alexander Ellebrecht, ChainPoint / Mr. Christian Grütters, VERAVIS / Mrs. Dr. Stefanie Kirschenmann, AGRIZERT / Mr. Dr. Thorsten Klauke, Landwirtschaftskammer of the state of NRW. All of them are in close contact with the private-partnership-networks of the university of Bonn for years.
Congratulations to all awarded persons.
