SCG has a new Executive Director

On 1 February 2007 Dr. Lukas Weber took over the management of the SCG Secretariat. Dr. Weber, from Basle, is 40 years old and was previously Deputy General Secretary of the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences (SATW). Following his studies in Electrical Engineering at ETH Zürich Dr. Weber headed several interdisciplinary projects at the institute. After obtaining his doctorate in Energy Analysis he worked as a post-doctorate researcher in the USA and was active as a scientific adviser to the Swiss Parliament. In 2004 he moved to SATW. There he successfully supported study groups and management bodies, executed projects and decisively improved the public image of SATW, through public relations and by modernising its website among other things. We welcome Dr. Weber and wish him much success and enjoyment in his new position.
