My Position/Profession/Field of Study
Head of Process Metallurgy Department
Saxony is a dynamic region where mineral and resource research is passionately pursued. There is a unique atmosphere with increasing internationalization and scientific influence. Qualified professionals like me are valued for making a significant contribution to the region's societal, economic, and ecological well-being. The right mix of academic, entrepreneurial, and research environments, coupled with one of Europe's strongest manufacturing, microelectronics, and process industry sites, makes Saxony attractive for engineers and managers. The future-oriented approach towards sustainability and circular economy, striving for cutting-edge technological development while preserving unique expertise in process, metal, and recycling industries, can only be found in Saxony. My family and I have received ample support in settling here, and we thoroughly enjoy living in this region.
