“I am truly looking forward to taking over this function,” stated Professor Neugebauer. “Over the past several years, Fraunhofer has achieved tremendous progress. We have succeeded in raising our profile in the political and economic arenas, both in Germany and internationally. And with systems research, such as in electromobility, we have created an excellent tool for internal networking. On this basis, a broad approach within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and collaboration with industry, we will be able to achieve quantum leaps for individual industries, with the aid of systems research.”

Professor Neugebauer headed the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU in Chemnitz for 21 years, turning it into an international leading partner for the automotive and mechanical engineering industry. As the years passed, more locations were added, including Dresden, Augsburg and Zittau, and strategic cooperative relationships were established in South Africa and Italy.
