FPC INSIDE, exclusive event on the 19th of September

The central task of the Fraunhofer Project Center is to transfer current research in advanced manufacturing directly into industrial practice. For this, we focus on the development of technological solutions in the area of production processes, production equipment, digital manufacturing and manufacturing value chain organization. Together with industry, we build synergies to achieve high-tech excellence within the fourth industrial revolution and to train the high-tech talents of tomorrow.

This could not be done without the professors and the students of the University of Twente. Through our student team FEST ( Fraunhofer Expertise Student Team) we offer exciting opportunities for students to work on our projects, develop their skills and have a look at the industry (link)  but also industrial cases from companies for university course assignments (PLM link).

The Fraunhofer Project Center at the University of Twente is a joint venture of three partners: the University of Twente, the hosting university, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft represented by its Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT in Aachen, Germany and Saxion University of Applied Sciences.
