Moscow Optic Experts in Wetzlar

Wetzlar optic companies and educational institutions in dialog with scientists of the renowned Baumann University in Moscow.

Russian scientists from the field of laser technology and optics at the Baumann University of Applied Sciences in Moscow visited companies of Wetzlar’s optics industry from 21st – 25th November. The delegation was initiated and escorted by Ludmila Zimmer of the Wetzlar agency “Markterfolg Russland” (“Market Success in Russia”). The guests were received by representatives of the industry network “Wetzlar Network“, including managers and directors of the region’s optic and precision engineering companies.


On behalf of the city of Wetzlar, Head of Economic Affairs Harald Semler welcomed the delegation, which was headed by Professor Valeriy Karasik. Professor Anita Röhm informed the experts about the “StudiumPlus” scheme in the buildings of the University of Applied Sciences for Central Hessen (THM) on the Spilburg campus. Afterwards, the group visited the optics assembly departments of Leica Microsystems and Leica Camera, the companies Helmut Hund (Wetzlar) and OptoTech (Wettenberg) and the Viseum.


The focus of the German-Russian Year of Education, Research and Innovation in 2011/2012 will be on partnership and exchange of ideas. Optics and photonics play a particularly vital role in the knowledge transfer for pioneering key technologies, and the exchange between Wetzlar companies and educational institutes and the renowned Baumann University is therefore to be continued in the next few years: in 2013, Wetzlar Network plans to present itself at the Optics Fair in Moscow. There are also plans to publish a joint German-Russian magazine. The Baumann University in Moscow is Russia’s oldest University of Applied Sciences, currently educating 18,000 students.
