FISITA Meetings in Frankfurt



September 2019

The FISITA team headed to Frankfurt, Germany in September for the Executive Board and Committee Meetings, while our annual Local Knowledge & Best Practice Presentation also featured in the agenda. This member session offered a fascinating insight into the local industry as well as some best practice advice from some of our Member Societies.

This year, we welcomed Dr. Friedrich Wolf-Monheim, from Ford Research & Advanced Engineering, who delivered the local industry presentation to attendees.

The Best Practice Presentations featured:

  • Juha Seppälä
    Vice President, Business Operations
    SATL (Finland)
  • Dr. Saskia Monsma
    Research Associate and Senior Lecturer, HAN University of Applied Sciences, Netherlands
  • PD Dr.-Ing. habil. Valentin Ivanov, DSc PhD MechEng
    Automotive Engineering Group, TU Ilmenau, Germany

At the Council Dinner, our President, Prof. Frank Zhao, presented the FISITA Award for Outstanding Contribution to Mr. John Lowe of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), our Member Society based in the UK. This award honours volunteer member involvement, which contributes to the overall success of FISITA - we're extremely grateful to John for his exemplary service to FISITA.
