Experience

Prof. Dr. Jens Schneider is a research fellow at the new branch of Fraunhofer IMW, Center for Economics of Materials CEM, which was transferred from Fraunhofer IMWS to Fraunhofer IMW in January 2020. Since 2019 he is responsible for energy system development in the context of sustainable structural change in coal regions (national/international). Prior to that he was the head of solar module technology at Fraunhofer CSP from 2011 to 2018. He got to know the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft through his role as research cooperation coordinator at CSG Solar AG, where he worked as a plant and process engineer from 2005 to 2011. From 2014 to 2019 Jens Schneider was an endowed professor, and since 2019 he is an honorary professor at the HTWK Leipzig University of Applied Science. Jens Schneider studied electrical engineering in Duisburg and at the TU Berlin and received his doctorate at the Hahn-Meitner-Institute (now Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin) in the field of silicon thin-film photovoltaics.
