Every year, the WGP awards the Otto-Kienzle Commemorative Medal to an excellent junior scientist of manufacturing technology.

Since 1971, the Otto-Kienzle commemorative medal has been awarded in memory of Prof. Otto Kienzle (1893-1969), a significant engineer, production planner and university teacher, who decisively had a lasting effect on production technology in Germany for more than 40 years. Otto Kienzle was one of the prominent personalities of the “University Group Production Technology”, which was renamed into the current German Academic Association for Production Technology (WGP) in 1987.
