The digitization in production and product development department covers three areas of specialization:
The digitization in mobility department deals with topics related to future travel solutions. In addition to collaborative research and development projects, this also includes participation in the Friedrichshafen test site.
Mobility is a fundamental human need and thus of central importance to society and the economy. Ever since the first Zeppelin took to the skies over Friedrichshafen, companies all around Lake Constance have been closely involved in transportation topics. The transportation industry is as important to the Lake Constance region as it has ever been – far beyond the automotive sector. We are open to collaboration in this area with SMEs, manufacturers, and universities in all kinds of sectors of industry, in order to shape the digitization of mobility together. We focus on the areas of networked infrastructure (V2X) and automated and networked driving.
Investing in employee training is key to a company’s competitiveness and safeguarding its future. Training courses and events include knowledge sharing with students, specialists, and managers. This area also includes customized training courses for companies and open seminars on current issues in business, technology, and management.
