"Anyone who wants to secure Germany as a location for technology needs the support of women. So we want to inspire young women to get enthusiastic about STEM subjects. I strongly believe that to achieve this aim it is vital to have more female role models. As a physicist, therefore, I am happy to become patron of the Women's STEM Award. My tip for girls and young women: Be bold. Take the opportunity that STEM offers you – exciting careers and interesting opportunities for development await you."

Digital Life

Digital Life

Digital Life

What might be possible, if we were consistently to make the most of the opportunities of digitization – not only in business, but also in our private lives? We're talking about technological progress in town planning and connectivity in cities, at home, or driven forward by connected clothing.
What is not yet connected and needs to be connected in the future? Surprise us with a piece of work that pushes the boundaries of possibility!

Industry 4.0

 Industrie 4.0

 Industrie 4.0

The forward-looking project Industry 4.0 gives German industry the chance to get actively involved in shaping the fourth industrial revolution. The aim is the smart factory. M2M communication is changing the world more or less automatically: it simplifies workflows, streamlines processes, and enables completely new business models.

Networks of the Future

Networks of the Future

Networks of the Future

Streaming films in HD, high-speed surfing, video telephony – demands on the network are rising steadily. In order to cope with the rapidly growing data volumes, the network capacity needs to be constantly increased. In addition, innovations in applications, e.g. connected cars, are opening up new possibilities for industry and end customers. Whether in mobile communications with the next generation 5G or in the fixed network with vectoring or the fiber-optic rollout – fast Internet connections are crucial to economic and social development.

Cyber Security

Cyber Security

Cyber Security

Attacks on the information infrastructures in cyber space are becoming increasingly complex and professional. At the same time, companies, state and citizens grow ever more dependent on IT, and so the potential for damage increases accordingly. Cyber security extends the area of activity of traditional IT security to cover all of cyber space. This makes modern information and communications technology practically in its entirety part of cyber space.

Automotive Technologies

Automotive Technologies

Automotive Technologies

The automotive industry is in the middle of a digital transformation – digital, company-wide collaboration in engineering and Industry 4.0 approaches to take the production of the future and customer experience in the trade to a new level. Even the car itself is increasingly connected, offers new possibilities and is on the threshold of becoming a self-driving vehicle. The key technologies are: cloud, big data, collaboration, security and M2M. Why not play your part in Mobility 2.0 by contributing your ideas on new business models and solutions.
