The Cluster of Excellence Internet of Production starts 2019!

  Dr. Martin Riedel

We did it!

We are glad to announce that our proposal for the new Cluster of Excellence "Internet of Production" was accepted and chosen for funding by the committee. The funding period starts on January 1, 2019. After 12 years of Cluster of Excellence Research within the framework of the Cluster of Excellence Integrative Production Technology for High Wage Countries, our interdisciplinary collaboration will be continued under the new topic: Internet of Production.

With our new Cluster IoP the next milestone for the establishment of application-oriented and innovative solutions in the field of production technology is on our list. The Internet of Production makes real-time capable safe information availability of all relevant data at any place possible and is therefore handled as one of the core pieces of Industrie 4.0. The IoP paves the way for a new era of production technology. Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Brecher of the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of RWTH University is the new Speaker for the next Cluster.

In addition to our own success, the approval of the Clusters "Fuel Science Center" (RWTH Aachen) and "ML4Q – Matter and Light for Quantum Computing " (RWTH Aachen and Bonn University as well as Cologne University) form the basis for RWTH application fot the title "University of Excellence".
