About the HOT
Board of Trustees

Board of Trustees of the Hannover Centre for Optical Technologies

To support the HOT, a board of trustees consisting of six members is formed: Three members from industry, one from politics and two from science. The board of trustees has an advisory function and accompanies the work of the HOT by bringing in external expertise. In particular, it strives to closely link university research with non-university applications.
