The International Partners in Glass Research (IPGR) group requires a Project Manager in research and development.

The IPGR is a research association that was founded 1984 and is based in Switzerland. Its vision is to create a vital, international research network and conduct development projects with glass container manufacturers in non-competitive markets.

A Project Manager is required for its subsidiary in Aachen, Germany, for research in an international environment, with a high motivation for team-orientated hands-on work.
