Hans-Christian Früh will become the new project manager of Composites for Europe, to be held as a business summit for composites in Stuttgart from 10-12 November. The 35-year old succeeds Daniel Schäfer.

“Hans-Christian is a composites man through and through. His CV reads like he is “re-engineering personified” at Composites for Europe,” says Goetz-Ulf Jungmichel, the event director in charge of materials trade fairs organised by Reed Exhibitions Deutschland. This, he adds, is specifically due to his broad-based thematic background in diverse composite applications and to his feel for challenges in this industry.

Früh, who studied mechanical engineering and aviation and aerospace technology at RWTH Aachen, comes with expertise that qualifies him for this new task.

Born in Mülheim, Früh received his doctorate for a thesis on automated handling in composites production. In parallel, Früh headed the research department “Automated Composites Production”. Here research focused on the automation and digitisation of composites.

His research activities were accompanied by international industry projects in the fields of automotive and aerospace. At the same time, Früh with a passion for aviation and music, worked on projects for electrically propelled aviation devices and carbon-based musical instrument making.
