70 years of shaping the future
The people at the IGB have always been the key to its scientific and commercial success. The various institute directors have determined what the institute looks like today by steering it in particular strategic directions, which were always informed by the latest economic challenges in each case and the relevant research policy priorities.
Particularly at a research institute whose very lifeblood is innovation, employees that shape the research conducted at the IGB and energetically carry out their tasks with panache, creativity and, above all, personal conviction and motivation are the greatest asset of all. This is the principle that has always been followed and always will be. Through their dedicated efforts, they play a role in developing solutions for the urgent challenges of our age.
That is why we want our employees, former institute directors, and companions and partners from the worlds of research, politics and business to have their say in the course of this anniversary year through our “70 voices” campaign. This will be a time for looking back, looking forward, looking inward and looking outward. The campaign starts with Dr. Markus Wolperdinger, Director of the Fraunhofer IGB.
