The recently concluded general assembly in Athens also elected an extended Board of Directors
CO-FOUNDER and Adimec chief-scientist Jochem Herrmann is the new president of the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA), a non-for-profit association representing the entire machine vision industry in Europe.
An EMVA Board member since 2013, Mr. Herrmann will take the place of Toni Ventura-Traveset of Datapixel, Spain, who led the association through the transition phase and whom the Board and the general manager thanked for his successful work and continuous support.

According to Mr. Herrmann, “The transition period now clearly lies behind us and for EMVA it is now time to expand our activities and further grow the association. I am looking forward to further develop EMVA together with my fellow Board members and the whole EMVA team.”
EMVA has also elected an extended Board of Directors during the General Assembly held last June 11 in Athens. Michel Ollivier has been named new vice president. Dr. Jean Caron of Euresys, Belgium will take over the position of treasurer. Dr. Caron was also confirmed as Board member, together with Gabriele Jansen of Vision Ventures, Germany; Michel Ollivier of Tiama, France; and Toni Ventura-Traveset of Datapixel, Spain.
The new Board members comprise Dr. Kai-Udo Modrich, managing director of Carl Zeiss Automated Inspection; and Prof. Dr. Bernd Jähne, head of the Heidelberg Collaboratory for Image Processing of Heidelberg University.
Dirk Käseberg of Mettler-Toledo Garvens, Germany, has left the Board to focus on his company. He will, however, continue to work closely with the EMVA Board in a less formal manner.
