A network for life

When colleagues move from research to industry, they remain connected to Fraunhofer IGCV after their departure through the friendships they have made – and are thus valuable contacts and sparring partners for new ideas. Through the newly founded "Ehemaligen Netzwerk IGCV e.V.", there is now another opportunity for former and active employees to network informally.

Alumni network IGCV e.V. started

With the advisory board election on May 13, 2022, all key positions are now filled and the association can officially start its work. In addition to Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rüdiger Daub and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Johannes Schilp as representatives from the institute's management, the now-retired Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gunther Reinhart has also been recruited for the association. He co-founded Fraunhofer IGCV in 2016 and, in retirement, supports the alumni association in order to bridge the gap between former colleagues and newcomers. In his speech before the advisory board election, he and his successor Rüdiger Daub agreed: "The alumni association is a network from which members can benefit throughout their lives. This is because the contacts not only serve as an informal exchange, but also as a breeding ground for new ideas from which alumni and researchers of Fraunhofer IGCV benefit equally."

Welcome to the association are alumni (also from RMV and FIL times) as well as currently employed personnel from all areas – if interested, further information is available at kontakt@ehemaligen-netzwerk-igcv.de.
