Professor Dr. Peter Gomber, holding the Chair of Business Administration, especially e-Finance and his team were awarded the IBM SUR (Shared University Research) grant 2007. This prize features extensive and high performance hardware (servers, desktop PCs, and laptops) serving as equipment for a University Trading Lab. The award was handed over to Professor Gomber at a meeting of the department's board of trustees by Rudolf Bauer, Managing Director at IBM Germany GmbH. The laudation accentuated the strong relationship between practical relevance and academic pretense in the Chair's work on modern forms of trading (such as electronic trading systems) in securities markets.
