Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees advises the Fraunhofer IGCV on content and strategic development matters. Its members include personalities from business, science and the public sector. The Executive Board of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft appoints the members in agreement with the Institute's management. The trustees have in common that they deal with the topic of production technology in different ways in their daily work. This is what makes their advice so valuable.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to all the trustees for their valuable guidance and constructive support.
