During its meeting on November 10, 2022, the Scientific Advisory Board Media (Wissenschaftlicher Beirat Medien) elected Mr. Maximilian Below as its new chairman. He succeeds Mr. Hans-Peter Urban, who chaired the board for 16 years.

Mr. Below is Managing Director of Studio Hamburg MCI GmbH. He studied media operations engineering at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW) from 1992 to 1998 and graduated as a graduate engineer. Afterwards he worked for several companies as a service and sales engineer and joined Studio Hamburg MCI GmbH in 1999. After various positions in the company, he took over the management of MCI in 2010.

Mr. Below has already been a member of the university's Science Advisory Board Media since 2019. In his future role as chairman of the advisory board, he sees himself as an honorary mediator between the representatives of industry and public institutions on the one hand and the students and researchers of TU Ilmenau on the other. Both sides should derive sustainable benefit from this cooperation.
