By launching the Bernd Breuckmann Award, we have the pleasure to honour and support the most outstanding 3D research idea of a non-profit-making scanning project in the field of arts and cultural heritage.

Let us know how an AICON scanner can help you accomplish your 3D scanning project in the field of arts and cultural heritage. The application for this award is open to everybody with a non-profit 3D digitisation project idea in the field of archaeology, arts, history, palaeontology and any other related disciplines. We especially invite students and young researchers to apply for this award.
