News | 2/2/2017
Where is our work headed? How can we optimize the potential of new technologies in our work? As digitalization spreads from the production hall to encompass processes and services, we face an array of new questions. The Future Work Lab provides answers and innovative approaches to these and other questions; it was officially opened today by Prof. Dr. Johanna Wanka, German Federal Minister for Education and Research, the Fraunhofer Executive Board, the institute directors and some 150 high-profile guests from politics, research and business. The innovation laboratory for work, people and technology pools the expertise of Fraunhofer IAO and IPA as well as the University of Stuttgart’s IAT and IFF, providing a shared wealth of expertise in all aspects of Industrie 4.0.
