Prof. Dr. Eric R. Labelle an die Université Laval berufen

Prof. Dr. Eric R. Labelle, Leiter der Professur für Forstliche Verfahrenstechnik seit 2014, ist an die Université Laval in Québec, Kanada berufen worden. Im kommenden November übernimmt er dort die Professur für Digital Forest Operations und verlässt die TUM daher Ende Oktober.

Rückblickend auf seine fünfjährige Tätigkeit an der TUM und gleichfalls mit Blick auf die Zukunft erklärte er:

For the past five years, I have been the Head of Forest Operations at the Technical University of Munich. During this time, the team has performed admirably and the accomplishments in the spheres of research and teaching have been impressive. We have created a niche in eco-efficient and financially feasible forest operations while forging vibrant partnerships in Academia as well as in governmental and private sectors. Keeping a close-eye on actual forest operations to observe on-going issues and challenges allowed the team to be proactive in providing technical and scientific solutions. I want to acknowledge everyone that contributed to the success of forest operations. In the next month, my time at TUM will come to an end as I have recently accepted a Professorship in digital forest operations at the Université Laval in Canada. My passion for eco-efficient forest operations will continue but on the other side of the Atlantic! I look forward to continuing my collaborations with TUM and other partnerships formed over the years.
