The people behind the research projects
IFA | Professor Peter Nyhuis is the new Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Leibniz University Hannover. He took over the position from Professor Jörg Wallaschek, who was responsible, among other duties, for the completion and relocation of the Campus Maschinenbau in Garbsen.
LZH | Additive Manufacturing processes can be used flexibly, for example to compensate for supply bottlenecks or to produce individualized components in a resource-saving manner. For companies to take advantage of these benefits, they must qualify their employees for 3D printing.
PhoenixD | The Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD cluster (Photonics Optics Engineering – Innovation Across Disciplines) receives 52 million euros in federal and state funding. How the approximately 110 researchers are using this money, explain the cluster’s executive board members, Professor Dr Uwe Morgner and Professor Dr Ludger Overmeyer.
PhoenixD | Dr Reinhard Caspary is the technology coordinator of the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD at Leibniz University Hannover. The graduate physicist and doctor of electrical engineering wishes the cluster members to develop a collective identity as “optics researchers”.
PhoenixD | Dr Marc-André Dittrich heads Task Group F2 – Expert Systems for Quality Control at PhoenixD. The interdisciplinary cooperation in the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD opens the doors for entirely new solutions.
IFA | Since August 2019, Dr.-Ing. Vivian Bellmann is heading the Research and Industry Department at the Institute of Production Systems and Logistics (IFA). She is succeeding Professor Dr.-Ing. Matthias Schmidt, who took over a professorship at Leuphana Universität, Lüneburg.
IPH | How can drones fly autonomously across a factory? This was the research topic of Christian Lamping’s Master thesis. His promising and innovative concept was honoured with the IPH Future Award 2019.
IPH | Change of management at IPH: Mareile Kriwall takes over the management in the field of process technology on 1 November 2019. The 34-year old mechanical engineer is responsible for ten staff members and many research projects and industrial contracts.
IMPT | From research to industry: With the “Magnetic Information Platform”, three researchers of the Institute of Micro Production Technology (IMPT) founded their own company, which is sponsored with about 725,000 euros from the EXIST programme.
