From the region, for the region and far beyond to new future markets, jobs and living spaces - this is the arc that a total of five top-class research consortia from the "Technology Region Aachen", supported within the framework of the funding initiative „Innovation & Strukturwandel“ of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), are building: The company- and research-driven alliances are dedicated to globally significant key technologies. They not only offer the chance to attract up to 60 million euros in funding to the region, but also to address key economic and social challenges of the 21st century, create new jobs and open up new global markets.
Here you will find brief profiles of the individual projects, whose full applications will be decided by independent juries at the federal level by the fall of this year. Further information on the projects can be found on the respective project Websites:
Joint networking event in February 2021
In order to introduce itself to the (supra)regional public, AGIT organized a joint networking event in February 2021 in cooperation with the regional BMBF project projects. Read the report of the Aachener Nachrichten.
The aim was not only to find further "fellow makers" and supporters in the business community, politics, local authorities, associations and intermediaries, but also to make clear the special synergies and cooperation potentials with which the "regional BMBF project family" will jointly contest the further concept and implementation phase! You can find more information about the contents of cooperation here: Synergies of the projects.
The networking and transfer between the BMBF projects and the region will be coordinated by the AGIT and will be accompanied and promoted by it in the further process.
