How to use the Open Innovation Lab as ...

Training manager: in 

A training workshop today can be much more than workbenches. Your trainees understand digital manufacturing and open innovation. You will actively contribute the skills and the right attitude to the company during your training through exciting projects. Makerspaces and FabLabs are role models. In this way, you remain attractive for new apprentices even beyond the company's borders.

Today, innovation no longer takes place in the laboratory cellar, but in exchange with all departments and areas together with customers, suppliers and other partners. Do you want to approach this integration systematically and support it with the right methods? To do this, you want to create a place where ideas come together and a place for digital manufacturing where you can advance these ideas into prototypes and products. In this way, you make a decisive contribution to your research and development.
