On October 1st 1998, Prof. Voigt started his journey at FAU as a newly appointed Professor at the then called “Lehrstuhl für Industriebetriebslehre” and as the successor of Prof. Dr. Werner Pfeiffer, one of the leading researchers in the field of innovation and technology management. Since then, a lot has happened and Prof. Voigt and generations of young researchers have worked on shaping the vision of the Chair. All of this was reason enough to gather old and new companions who have helped to build and further develop the Chair in order to make it what it is today. Most of the more than 80 doctoral students who successfully completed their PhD in the last twenty-five years and six of the (up to now) eight professors of the “Voigt School” met at the festive Hirsvogelsaal next to the School of Business and Economics of FAU. All guests, including our Honorary Professors Stefan Asenkerschbaumer and Heinrich v. Pierer, made this evening an unforgettable event!

Prof. Voigt would like to express his gratitude to all who have contributed to the development of the Chair in the last 25 years. And be assured: This success story goes on!
