On May 20, 2022, our former department head passed away after a short, serious illness. Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Rainer Grünwald.

Since 1988, Prof. Grünwald was a university lecturer at our Institute for Process Measurement and Sensor Technology. In his farsighted and unselfish way, he helped to lead the institute over decades and represented it internationally in an outstanding manner. As a university lecturer, he enriched the education of our students with his demanding lectures.

We will keep Prof. Grünwald in honorable memory as a distinguished, committed scientist and an open and honest person.
