Dr.-Ing. Philip Scharfer is head of the group Thin Film Technology (TFT) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) Campus North. Since 2011 he is research group leader at the InnovationLab in Heidelberg. InnovationLab is a combined platform for research and knowledge transfer within the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) leading-edge cluster Forum Organic Electronics. Dr. Scharfer received his PhD in process engineering from the University of Karlsruhe (TH) in 2009. In addition to his practical skills and his expertise as a consultant, he is an expert in the fields of drying and thermodynamics of thin films. He deals with measuring methods for the investigation of polymer film drying and develops numerical simulation tools for industrial dryer applications. Since 2009, Dr. Scharfer is a member of the scientific committee of the European Coating Symposium (ECS), since 2012 member of the Board of Directors of the International Society of Coating Science and Technology (ISCST). In 2014, he was awarded with the L. E. Scriven Young Investigator Award by the ISCST.
