Board of Trustees

The board of trustees advises the management of the Fraunhofer IPMS as an external advisory board in strategic questions. Representatives from industry and research, from public authorities, ministries or funding organizations are invited and appointed by the President of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. The board of trustees meets once a year to get an overview of the institute's achievements and to give the institute important impulses for its future strategic orientation.
