The ir. A. Davidson award is awarded every other year and serves to stimulate young talented mechatronical designers. The award is intended for a young precision technologist with several years of working experience in industry who has accomplished outstanding work in precision mechatronics, the results of which are acknowledged both inside and outside of the organization.
Furthermore, his enthusiasm for the field should have a positive appeal to young precision engineers. The award is named after a key figure in Dutch precision technology history. Ir. A.
