Dr Hubert Jäger Appointed to the Chair for Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology (ILK) at TU Dresden

He succeeds Prof. Werner Hufenbach at the ILK/DE. It is one of the key institutes of TU Dresden/DE, with more than 200 employees and external funding of EUR 12,5 million in 2013. Dr H. Jäger (58) studied chemistry at the University of Karlsruhe, where he obtained a doctorate in carbon-fiber polymer composite materials. Since joining SIGRI (the forerunner of SGL Group) in 1986, he has held various operational and techno­logical managerial roles in the Group, in­cluding the fields of cathodes and graphite electrodes. Since 2004, Dr H. Jäger has headed SGL Group’s Technology & In­novation Research Facility, which now has 160 employees. In this time, he made the Meitingen location the focal point of re­search activities, building up a state-­of-the­-art research infrastructure with laboratory, and testing facilities and pilot plants. The guiding principles of his work were foster­ing close collaboration between industry, science, and research and, in particular, setting up networks. He has represented SGL Group in various external committees and network initiatives.
