I am a member of the EurA AG management team and head of the Aachen branch. As an expert, I have gained more than 30 years of experience in the field of cross-industry technology management, which includes the areas of technology consulting, transfer as well as evaluation. I have already been described as a "Methuselah" in the technology transfer program by a long-time companion of the European Space Agency (ESA). My activities include leading functions in national (e.g. for DLR and the State of North Rhine-Westphalia) and international (e.g. ESA) transfer initiatives. For example, I was involved in setting up the technology transfer activities of ESA and for the DARA (German Agency for Space Affairs - today's Space Agency at DLR) back in the early 1990s and is still active in this area. To mediate and support the transfer activities, a set of both broadband and targeted instruments has been developed over the years and used very successfully for many years. These activities have led to participation in more than 270 successful mediations of innovation projects for the creation of new products and services based on space technology in a wide variety of industries and markets (spin-off), as well as from a wide variety of industries into aerospace (spin-in). The partners involved in these transfers have tapped into sales potential in the multi-digit million EURO range.
