Dr. Peter Kaever took up his new post as head of the Research Technology Department on January 1, 2010. He studied electrical engineering at Karlsruhe University and, afterwards, gained a PhD in robotics. The focus of his career has been in automation engineering so far.
The Research Technology Department supports the scientific institutes of the FZD with constructing, building and servicing experimental facilities. Several new such facilities are now planned in the frame of the FZD changing to the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres next year. "Supporting the FZD institutes with these projects will be a major challenge for the department in the near future", says its new head Dr. Kaever.
