Key speaker:

Mr. Harald Jaeger is the technical trainer for EMC and Metrology @ the Rohde & Schwarz training center in Munich.

How our key speaker describes himself in one sentence: A crazy guy that loves metrology.

Mr. Jaeger holds a degree in Electronic engineering from the University of Applied Sciences Ravensburg-Weingarten (Dipl. Ing. (FH)). After joining R&S in 1998 he worked in several positions from service (e.g. repair and calibration) to training, but always related to RF&MW, EMC and metrology. Calibration of RF&MW test and measurement instruments will also be the core topic for the sessions on Wednesday, May 4th.

We are looking forward for welcoming you to a day filled with calibration topics. We hope you will leave the seminar with a deeper understanding and overview of all the aspects, that are related to this topic.

The event is organized and hosted by Rohde & Schwarz Denmark A/S in cooperation with SDU – University of Southern Denmark.
