Innovations are born in North Rhine-Westphalia. We would like to take the dialogue between the engaged parties in R&D in business and science to a new level. We provide contacts within university facilities and list some important projects to help you find the correct contacts.
North Rhine-Westphalia has the best prerequisites for the digital age. Companies in mechanical engineering and production technology are particularly in demand as enablers and problem solvers. They act as suppliers of industry 4.0 components, as integrators of IK technologies and sensor technology into their products, and last but not least as users of industry 4.0 solutions to optimize their own production processes.
Digitisation and Industry 4.0 bring with them a new value-added logic that is a complex challenge for all involved. ProduktionNRW has defined five thematic areas that need to be analysed, discussed and promoted.
