Impulses for Smart Products
Central to SmartPro is building a base for the development of smart products, especially in the field of e-mobility, mobile and autonomous systems. Therefore the various expertise on smart materials and intelligent production processes of the four research areas have been brought together.
The SmartPro partnership is based on a long-term concept for cooperation. Research in the framework of impulse projects focusses on four areas of application:
“Aufbruch in Aalen”: special issue in bild der wissenschaft and Industrie-anzeigera
Auf in Aalen: special issue in „bild der wissenschaft“ and Industrieanze
