AIS Awards Kathleen Schröter with the AIS Distinguished Leadership Award 2018

In January 2018 the Advanced Imaging Society (AIS) honored 13 women in entertainment, arts and technology with the Distinguished Leadership Award. Kathleen Schröter, Head of Marketing and Corporate Communications at Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, HHI, received the award for her efforts to bring the scientific approaches of imaging technologies into the media industry. She accepted the award at the official luncheon in Beverly Hills.
Kathleen is the Executive Manager of the 3IT Innovation Center for Immersive Imaging Technologies since its founding in 2011 (as 3D Innovation Center at that time) and leads the Marketing and Corporate Communications department of Fraunhofer HHI since October 2014.
Managing the 3IT lead to understanding the industry and so she started to host, curate, and moderate events with a focus on digital media and immersive technologies. In her numerous speeches at different conferences, she translates academic scientific approaches into real use cases and daily life scenarios.
Jim Chabin, President of the AIS, explains: “The jury concluded that Kathleen is known for her outstanding ability to connect the scientific and academic research communities with senior entertainment industry stakeholders. A leader with her level of accomplishments in both of these industries is rarely found”.
