Networks and cooperations are central for us in many respects – For example, many projects can often no longer be realized on their own due to their complexity. But networks and cooperation can also become indispensable when it comes to developing innovations, achieving sufficient market weight or mitigating location-related disadvantages. We therefore maintain regular contact with industry associations, universities of applied sciences, research facilities and other institutions, the only way we can keep pace with technological and social change.
