Scientific Networks


Important groundwork for the IoP was already laid in the final phase of the prior cluster. The interconnected and innovative cooperation within such a large network across disciplinary boundaries was one of the building blocks that characterizes today's work - within the cluster, but also externally. The cooperation with internationally established partners at scientific, industrial, political and social fields, which was founded in the previous cluster, has been successfully continued in the new phase since 2019.

Due to numerous activities, including scientific cooperation, many connections, exchanges and guest visits could be initiated and carried out. These cooperations range from scientific cooperation with the Korean universities Seoul National University (SNU), the Finnish Metals and Engineering Competence Cluster DIMECC (formerly FIMECC) and the Tampere University (Finland), the University of California, Berkeley (USA), the Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico) and the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (Brazil), Stellenbosch University (South Africa), Tsinghua University (China), Tokyotech (Japan) and Keio University (Japan).

The support and participation in exchange programmes such as the DAAD PostdocNet, exchange within the framework of the DWIH, delegation visits and cooperation with universities (KEIO, SNU, Shanghai etc.), set highlights especially with regard to the increasing internationalisation of the cluster.

The IoP provides funds for cooperation with internationally established guest researchers (professors, junior researchers and doctoral candidates) from the above-mentioned institutions. The aim is to promote international research in the research areas of the Internet of Production.

In its activities, the IoP is guided by the Federal Government’s Strategy for the Internationalization of Education, Science and Research.
