Atif Memon receives Fraunhofer-Bessel Research Award

Professor Atif Memon has received a Fraunhofer-Bessel Research Award from the Humboldt Foundation and the Fraunhofer Society for the Advancement of Applied Research.

According to Professor Adam Porter, Scientific Director and Executive Director of Fraunhoffer USA, Memon "plans to use his award to collaborate with the UMD-affiliated Fraunhofer Center for Experimental Software Engineering and with Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering on a long-term research project in Model-based Software Testing."
