With PROTECA, the SME technology transfer of the IoP was again able to present itself as a member of the competence cluster ProduktionNRW to interested visitors at the NRW state community stand. The Hannover Messe 2023 focused on trend topics such as CO2-neutral production, energy management, Industry 4.0, AI & machine learning as well as hydrogen & fuel cells. The partner country of the Hannover Messe was Indonesia, which is by far the largest economy in the ASEAN region.

"Solutions for a networked and climate-neutral industry are central innovation topics for companies and research institutions from North Rhine-Westphalia. Here in Hannover, we can see how production and production processes can be designed to be future-proof, digital and sustainable [...] With their innovative solutions, companies from North Rhine-Westphalia are among the drivers and pioneers of the industry of the future - and I am very pleased that so many companies from North Rhine-Westphalia are taking advantage of the opportunity and showing a broad public how innovative North Rhine-Westphalia is", emphasized Minister Mona Neubauer in her press statement on her visit to the trade fair.
