Director of Institute / General Manager
"Research is exciting. You can nurture new insights from own ideas based on creative scientific work. But only the transfer of these insights into new technologies and products will give all this a real meaning. With our activities at the FILK we are sort of building bridges between science and industry. A particular high motivation for me is when our ideas and results enter production and applications. As a reliable partner in research and development we have been supporting the innovation capacity of medium-sized enterprises, and that already for more than 130 years. Of course, our technology and material competences are also incorporated into our services such as material testing, consultancy and further education."
