On 23/24 January 2019 the 1st network meeting of phase 2 of the FOresIght network took place. Our 36 network partners (classic medium-sized companies, R&D facilities but also large industrial companies (OEM, Tier 1/2)) had the opportunity to get to know each other better in a business matching organized by the network management of ZENIT GmbH. 98 discussions had been organized.
The new (international) partners thus had the opportunity to make business contacts and present their products, services and R&D ideas to potential customers. GENERATIONDESIGN GmbH, one of our SME network partners, provided the rooms in the Elba Zukunftswerk in Wuppertal and created a design-oriented, open atmosphere in the Coworking Space.
The innovation network, founded in November 2017, started with 19 German partners and currently has 36 network partners, including six international partners from Switzerland, the UK and the Netherlands.
The goals are, among others, to initiate innovations in automotive interiors and thus, for example, to ensure competitiveness through knowledge transfer between R&D institutions and companies as well as easy access to funding.
Network membership is possible at any time.
