Minister for Digital Strategy and Development honours Biotest trainees
In a virtual award ceremony, Prof. Dr. Kristina Sinemus, Hessian Minister for Digital Strategy and Development honoured the winners in this year's apprentice competition of the Employers' Association Hessen Chemie. 146 trainees from a total of 35 teams entered the competition despite the Corona pandemic. Two trainee teams from Biotest took part, and one team took first place with their project "BioFly".
What is behind the project "BioFly"? To this the group says:
"Our project team tackled the innovative topic of "medication shipping using light cargo delivery drones". In times of Covid-19, contactless shipping of medicines is a safe alternative to conventional shipping methods, especially for risk groups. The goal behind our idea is fast and location-accurate shipping of medicines, suitable for regular deliveries and especially for time-critical emergencies."
To this end, the group has developed an app through which our life-saving medicines can be ordered. These can be delivered promptly by contactless drone to the appropriate locations. A great idea, especially in these times of contact bans!
