The CLIC is happy to welcome Erik Heilmann starting in May 2019 as a new research associate to our team.
Erik studied state sciences with a focus on economics at the University of Erfurt. During his studies he was able to gain experience working for the State Chancellery of Thuringia, as well as the European Parliament in Brussels. After graduating, Erik worked for the EU Commission and the land of North Rhine-Westphalia in the field of internationalization and foreign trade promotion. In the following, he took a position as network manager at Leipzig’s 2b AHEAD Think Tank and founded his own high-tech startup. Erik completed HHL’s Executive Entrepreneurship Program in 2019.
At CLIC, Erik will be supporting the team heading the new project “futureTEX” which is concerned with the establishment of an incubator for companies in the field of technical textiles and disruptive products.
