On our own behalf: OLEC young talent and new old cluster management team

It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye in the second half of the year to our three students who have actively supported us at OLEC e.V. over the past years. All three were students of the Master's program in Sustainability Economics and Management at the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg and have now successfully completed their studies.

Marina Kemper supported us first as a student assistant and then took over the project management for the project Energetisches Nachbarschaftsquartier Fliegerhorst Oldenburg in August 2019. At the same time, she wrote her final thesis on the topic: "Longitudinal analysis of corporate carbon performance" and dealt with the question which factors influence the CO2 performance of a company.

Since February 2019 Maren Harberts supports us as a student assistant in cluster management, projects, events and public relations. In cooperation with the OLEC member Treurat und Partner Unternehmensberatungsgesellschaft mbH and board member Apl. Prof. Dr. Ulrich Scheele, Maren Harberts wrote her final thesis on the topic "Energetic Neighborhood Development" and specifically examined the KfW program 432 Energetic Urban Development.

Julia Laux also supported us from April 2019 to June 2020 as a student assistant and master's student. She was significantly involved in the Competence Atlas and the governance analysis within the project "Electric Mobility as a Key to Future Mobility". In this context she also wrote her master thesis on the topic: "On the way to an electromobile region - The role of the municipalities in the metropolitan region Northwest". This thesis was also supervised by the member of the board Prof. Dr. Ulrich Scheele.

We are incredibly proud of our young talent and are pleased to have been able to accompany these promising young ladies on part of their journey and would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again from the bottom of our hearts for their great work. 

Changes in OLEC cluster management: 

Furthermore, we also say goodbye to Friederike Hackmann, project manager for international activities. Mrs. Hackmann has supported us in the past 10 months in the context of parental leave and especially accompanied the Dutch cooperation. We also wish Mrs. Hackmann all the best for her further professional and personal development! 

Cluster manager Isabelle Ehrhardt and project manager Silke Timmer have been back from parental leave since August and September. The OLEC team has taken advantage of the personnel changes and has repositioned itself: 

Mrs. Ehrhardt and Mr. Blum will share the leadership of the network as cluster management dual leadership in the future. 

Ms. Nobel will be responsible for press and public relations and marketing. 

Ms. Rohjans and Ms. Timmer will continue to oversee the working group and project activities in the network. All contact details can be found here at a glance.
