Vision & Control GmbH sponsors the Industrial Image Processing Professorship at Ilmenau University of Technology and in doing so emphasises the close link between research and practical applications.

On signing the funding agreement for the endowed professorship, the foundation was laid for the development of joint research projects and the promotion of young talent.

The decision to fund the post was taken on the basis of the close and productive relationship with Ilmenau University of Technology which has existed for many years. The aim is to safeguard the key field of industrial image processing in research and teaching, and thereby further enhance the position of the university. In addition, Vision & Control is focusing on securing future talent for the company.

The endowed professorship at Ilmenau University of Technology will be assigned to the specialist field of quality assurance and industrial image processing in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and will also be part of the Institute of Automotive and Production Technology on an inter-faculty basis.

The five-year sponsorship period begins when the endowed professor takes up his or her position, for whom the selection process is currently taking place as part of an appointment procedure.
