On 1 November 2009, after 33 years of working for the Hohenstein Institute, Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Karl-Heinz Umbach will be retiring from the institute. Following his physics studies and subsequent doctoral studies in the area of solid state physics, Prof. Umbach started as a scientific assistant at Stuttgart University. During this time he also completed the 2nd exam for teaching at institutions of higher education. He joined the Hohenstein Institute in 1976, assuming the management of the clothing physiology area. He has held the function of acting manager of the Bekleidungsphysiologisches Institut Hohenstein e.V. since 1993.

As part of his work he refined and supplemented existing clothing physiology-related measuring instruments and also developed new devices and measurement methods as well as biophysical calculation models. In addition, he also established the method for a systematic construction of functional clothing in the scientific world through lecturing assignments at the universities of Stuttgart, Kassel and North Carolina State University in the US, as well as numerous publications and presentations. He has also contributed his knowhow, for which he has been recognised worldwide, to a number international standardisation and other committees.

Prof. Umbach will continue to assist the Hohenstein Institute in an advisory capacity, and in particular provide support to Dr. Andreas Schmidt, the director of the newly established department "Function & Care", along with the department's scientific manager Dr. Jan Beringer.
