Trend Scouting – Corporate Foresight – Startup Matchmaking: These are tools that help companies prepare for change and shape the future. Mechanical engineering is an innovation-driven industry that always implements current trends. It therefore must develop a sense for customers’ and end users’ needs early on. However, especially small and medium-sized companies can hardly check the flood of new trends systematically with regard to their business, might it be an opportunity or a threat. This applies not only to new technologies, but also to societal, economical, ecological or policy changes. VDMA shows how “buzzwords” can become successful business, presents trends that will shape our industry within the next decade, and how machine makers and start-ups can learn from each other.
