Presidency handed over

PTB-News 2.2022

The former President of PTB, Prof. Dr. Joachim Ullrich, passed the baton to Prof. Dr. Cornelia Denz on 1 May 2022. She is the first female president in PTB’s more than 135-year history. Before taking on this post, Cornelia Denz headed the Institute of Applied Physics at the Westfälische Wilhelms- Universität Münster for seven years. Because she has been a member of the “Kuratorium” (Advisory Board) for many years, she is already very familiar with PTB. After leading PTB for ten years, Joachim Ullrich will take up a new position as the president of the German Physical Society (DPG).
