IDE student runner up Golden RAI Wheel Student award

News - 27 March 2019 - Communication

Imagine a jury is so impressed with your project, that they create a runner up place for an award, just for you. This year, in addition to the prize awarding of the Golden RAI Wheel (Gouden RAI Wiel), a student prize was also awarded for the first time at the annual RAI Automotive diner in The Hague on 25 March. IDE student Harm Cnossen became runner up with his graduation project ‘MIND, exclusivity through conduct’.

The first prize went to Martijn Hollestelle, student of the faculty of CITG at TU Delft. He graduated on public space scenarios once car sharing reduces the need for parking capacity.

The jury, however, was so impressed by the graduation project of IDE student Harm Cnossen, that they decided to also have a second award this year. Harm graduated at Mercedes in Stuttgart, with Elmer van Grondelle and Jeroen van Erp. With his project ‘MIND, exclusivity through conduct’, Harm designed a brand-loyalty driven interaction without ownership, i.e. car sharing. The award consists of a framed certificate, a sum of money and an article that will be published in the GO!Mobility Magazine of the RAI Association. The award was presented by Steven van Eijck, chairman of the RAI Association.

In 2010, the IDE faculty received the Golden RAI Wheel for the Advanced Automotive programme.
