This year as well the University of Stuttgart will be presenting its diverse and forward-looking research achievements at the Hanover Fair. As a co-exhibitor at the Baden-Württemberg Joint Stand, that is organised by Baden-Württemberg International (bw-i), the competence centre of the state on the internationalism of business, science and research, the University will be showing the visiting public from all over the world its research achievements at the forefront of scientific-technological progress. With its fair activities, the University of Stuttgart is underlining the necessity of rapidly transferring findings from research to industrial innovations.
With a view to the trade fair commitment in Hanover, Professor Wolfram Ressel, Rector of the University of Stuttgart, emphasised:In order to be able to facilitate our industrial partners access to our research achievements as efficiently as possible, the University of Stuttgart as a research university of international ranking has strategically repositioned and intensified its activities in knowledge and technology transfer.
The trade fair appearance by the University will be taking place between 23rd and 27th April in the framework of the leading fair Research & Technology in Hall 2. This leading fair for research, development and technology transfer makes the interaction between science and business the subject of discussion as a crowd-puller at the Hanover Fair.
Present as an eye-catcher again: the stand as an exhibit
The carbon-fibre reinforced lightweight structure of the university fair stand was realised through computer-aided design and simulation tools as well as an innovative, core-less robotic winding process for fibre composite components. The Institute for Computer-Based Design (ICD) and for Support Structures and Constructive Design (ITKE) that were involved in the conceptual design and scopes for the architecture with the construction.
