Dr Sören Fricke
Dr Sören Fricke heads the Integrated and Flexible Sensors sector at the Swiss Centre for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM), where he develops sensors that are mainly applied in life sciences, robotics and Industry 4.0. Dr Fricke is a physicist with a broad background in semiconductors, micro- and nano-optics and printed electronics, and he gained a strong manufacturing background in the automotive electronics industry.
Dr Fricke will contribute to the project in the area of scale-up and pilot production, maintaining a link with the M4IVD association, of which he is the Chairman. His research interest is in precision technologies for life science applications and the scale-up of new technologies to industrial readiness. Within his sector and through his connection to M4IVD, he strives to not only develop lab prototypes, but also to bring these to pilot production. The CSEM’s technology platforms provide a toolbox for diagnostic devices, which are constantly being developed for anticipated future needs.
