Innovativ durch Forschung
We were awarded the “Innovative through Research” prize by the Stiftverband!
The Stifterverband is one of the largest private sponsors of science in Germany. Besides its commitment to young academics, excellent
universities and top-level research, it is also his task to examine and evaluate the German research and innovation system. How much does industry invest in research and development in Germany? What impact does this have on the future viability of this country? These questions are the focus of the R&D survey that the Science Statistics Unit of the Stifterverband conducts annually on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
In recent years, we have participated in various research projects to broaden our horizons and support research projects. Among other things, we were part of the ES-FLEX-INFRA project funded by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, which stands for “Coupling of energy sectors to make the energy infrastructure more flexible”. The software developed for this project is designed to enable energy suppliers to analyse and operate load shifts and the integration of storage facilities in the urban infrastructure. In addition to the Fraunhofer SCAI, the Technical University of Cologne, Werusys GmbH & Co. KG and the Rheinische NETZGesellschaft mbH.
