Dr. Henning Döscher

Dr. Henning Döscher is a project manager and senior researcher at the Emerging Technologies department of the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI in Karlsruhe, Germany, since 2017. His work at Fraunhofer ISI focuses on innovation systems investigations on novel materials and technologies. Through his participation in several national and international research projects, he gained insight into innovation and diffusion of Industrial Technologies. Henning published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals on diverse topics in materials science, semiconductor physics, surface science, solar energy, and (photo-)electrochemistry. Among other projects, Henning currently contributes to the Graphene Flagship Project, where he coordinates the Technology and Innovation Roadmap process. He studied Physics (and Physical Technologies) as well as Business Information Systems at TU Clausthal, including research visits to UW Madison (WI, USA), to NCSU Raleigh (NC, USA), and to Cairo University (Egypt). In 2006, he joined Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (former Hahn-Meitner-Institut) and received his doctorate from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in 2010 based on a thesis on III-V heteroepitaxy on silicon substrates. Based at TU Ilmenau, he received a Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship from the European Union, which enabled him to research the generation of solar fuels at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (CO, USA) and to return to Philipps-Universität Marburg.
