News | Vetter’s Dr. Claudia Roth is appointed to the Fraunhofer Advisory Board

Appointment will allow for active involvement within the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA

Ravensburg, March 28, 2017 – Dr. Claudia Roth, Vice President for Vetter’s department of Innovation Management, has been appointed to the Advisory Board of the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA in Stuttgart. Over the next two years, Dr. Roth will be active in the Process Industry business unit.

Cooperation among scientific research organizations, such as Germany’s preeminent Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, is an integral part of Vetter's innovation management. “Sharing information with the sciences offers significant stimuli, particularly in the field of manufacturing,” said Dr. Roth. “This appointment is particularly exciting since it allows me to contribute knowledge I gained as a member of the Advisory Board of the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA.” The IPA’s Process Industry business unit researches how programs such as Industry 4.0 can be applied to processes in the pharmaceutical sector.

The fact that Vetter's innovation manager is discussing such issues with members of the IPA Advisory Board is valuable for both Vetter and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Commenting on the appointment, Dr. Michael Hilt, deputy head of Fraunhofer IPA in Stuttgart said: “Dr. Roth’s years of experience will help us better focus our development and solutions on the corporate needs of the process industry.”

Vetter is currently working on securing its future due to a 360-degree process involving internal and external impulses to find new incitements. The ideas are integrated in a multi-stage innovation process which starts with a potential appraisal and ends with the possible market launch. The focus is on new manufacturing processes and technologies, additional services and innovative application systems to increase customer value.

Dr. Claudia Roth, who holds a diploma in Process engineering, has been with Vetter since many years. As a specialist in development she has played a major role in setting up the Vetter Development Service. She also headed up Vetter Development Service Chicago, USA, from 2009 to 2014.
