The Regional 2025 project “Innovation Hub Bergisches RheinLand” has reached another milestone: The supporting association was founded on 8 July 2019. This means that the supporting association and the Cologne University of Applied Sciences can conclude the cooperation agreements necessary for the application.
In the future, medium-sized industrial companies would like to implement innovative Industry 4.0 projects in the Innovation Hub together with computer science and mechanical engineering experts from the TH Köln, Gummersbach Campus.
