Berlin, 15 June 2017- The members of the AMA Association for Sensors and Measurement (AMA) confirmed Peter Krause (First Sensor AG) as Chair of the Executive Board at the Annual General Meeting on 31 May in Nuremberg. Newly elected to office were Dr. Rolf Slatter (Sensitec GmbH) as Secretary and Professor Dr. Stefan Zimmermann (Leibniz University Hanover) as Assessor and Chair of the AMA Science Board.
Rolf Slatter is an executive partner of Sensitec GmbH and a long-standing member of various AMA committees. He will take over the office of secretary from Peter Scholz (imc Test & Measurement GmbH), who after a number of terms in office will no longer be available as a candidate. Stefan Zimmermann was voted as the chair of the AMA Science Board, replacing the chair of many years, Andreas Schütze (University of the Saarland), who is also not available as a candidate for this office, but will continue as vice-chair of the AMA Science Board. Confirmed for a two-year term of office are Christoph Kleye (IS-Line GmbH) as vice-chair and Johannes W. Steinebach (TWK-ELEKTRONIK GmbH) as treasurer. “Our thanks for the trust you have placed in us. We will continue as a new team with renewed strength to link innovators”, said Peter Krause commenting on the Executive Board election. “We will go on purposefully with the expansion of our network. The challenges of the future play downright into our hands here. The approaches to future projects, such as CO2-neutral and energy-efficient cities, as well as sustainable mobility, Internet-based services for the economy, Industry 4.0, and secure identities, are all based on data that is provided by sensors and evaluated by measuring technology. With the combined knowhow of our members we are ready to help all of our contacts in industry, science, and politics with a future-oriented dialog,” said Krause explaining the objectives of the AMA Association during his term of office. The AMA was founded in 1981 as the AMA Working Group for Transducers (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Messwertaufnehmer) and can draw on the technical competence of 460 members from industry and science. The AMA is the first contact for sensor and measuring technology and cultivates the innovation dialog at the leading trade fair SENSOR+TEST, at the scientific AMA Conferences, and at community stands of major trade fairs in Germany and abroad.
