The EUHA Sponsorship Award was presented for the tenth time this year. EUHA Vice President Eva Keil-Becker devoted her laudation to the subject of dynamics, comparing the sponsorship awardees to the white billiard ball. This is the trigger that brings dynamics to the game. In 2019, the Sponsorship Award went to: Christoph Neumann and Lennart Bandick from the Academy of Hearing Aid Acoustics. Their paper entitled “Determining transcranial frequency response while using an air conduction transducer” earned them first prize. Second prize was awarded to Josef Schröder from Carl von Ossietzky University in Oldenburg. His topic: “Evaluating the effect of linear and compressive hearing aid processing on perceived quality of music and musical scene transparency in people with impaired hearing”. Larissa Jäger, a graduate from the Technical University of Applied Sciences in Lübeck, came third. She dealt in detail with the “Determination of reference speech recognition curves for the Freiburg monosyllabic speech test in noise for various loudspeaker configurations”. The anniversary of the award prompted Eva Keil-Becker to thank the members of the jury and to mention all thirty-one recipients of the EUHA Sponsorship Award by name.
