The “MID Innovation” module is aimed at implementation-oriented research and development activities that can be commissioned from universities and research institutions.

🛠️ Funded by “MID-Innovation”, we have developed our Digital Consultant PETE together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT to market maturity.
