In line with its statutes, yesterday’s meeting of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft senate included elections of the new senate chairperson and two deputies. Hildegard Müller, president of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), will succeed Prof. Jörg Fuhrmann, who has given many years of commendable service to the role. Oliver Zipse, chair of the board of management of BMW AG, was reelected as deputy alongside Kerstin Grosse, managing director of DEROSSI Invest GmbH. She is taking on the role as a successor to Prof. Birgit Spanner-Ulmer, whose work has also earned her much merit.
