Recognized for her contribution to the maximization of development efficiency for Korean automotive manufacturers through the building up of the virtual vehicle test environment, Bokyung Lee, project engineer at ETAS Korea, named the first recipient of the Women in Innovation award at the KGCCI (Korean-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry) Innovation Awards 2020.

The KGCCI Innovation Awards, initiated in 2015 by the Korean-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KGCCI) with the purpose of showcasing innovative products, technologies, and business strategies of Korean and German companies, presents awards in four categories: Innovation in Business, Innovation in Digitalization, Innovation in Sustainability, and Women in Innovation, a category newly established this year.

Bokyung Lee, a key project engineer of the virtualization project at ETAS Korea, was recognized for her contribution to the maximization of development efficiency for Korean automotive manufacturers. She played an instrumental role in building up the virtual vehicle test environment in PCs and in the ETAS cloud by integrating a virtual ECU model and an ETAS virtual vehicle model. This optimization saves costs and allows tests to be conducted in a much shorter time.

Since its founding in 1981, the KGCCI has been promoting economic relations between the Federal Republic of Germany and the Republic of Korea, and currently has 500 members.
