Christoph Keplinger, new Director for Robotic Materials at MPI-IS, joins CLS

cls 14 September 2020 News

The Max Planck Society has appointed Christoph Keplinger as a director at the Stuttgart location of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS). He will lead the newly established “Robotic Materials” department to pursue research on soft robotics, functional polymers and energy capture – three interrelated areas that are critical to robotic materials, a new class of material systems that tightly integrate actuation, sensing and even computation to provide physical building blocks for the intelligent systems of the future. We are pleased to welcome Christoph Keplinger as a member of CLS faculty.
