After almost ten years in industry, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rüdiger Daub returns to research on June 01, 2021. His appointment as full professor of the newly established Chair of Production Technology and Energy Storage Systems at the iwb is preceded by many years of experience both at the iwb itself and in the field of battery cell production: Rüdiger Daub received his doctorate from the Institute of Machine Tools and Industrial Management in 2012 and joined the BMW Group in the area of technology development and prototype construction immediately after his doctorate. Most recently, as Head of Technology Development and Prototype Construction, he was responsible for the production of lithium-ion electrodes.
As full professor of the newly established Chair of Production Technology and Energy Storage Systems, Rüdiger Daub will now support Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael F. Zäh in the institute management of the iwb from June 01, 2021. In a new cooperation model in joint appointment with the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, he will thus assume responsibility for battery research at the iwb as well as the scientific area of processing technology at Fraunhofer IGCV. With his many years of experience in battery cell production at BMW, Mr. Daub will primarily drive research in this area in the future.
