Cluster of Excellence IoP

 

The vision of the Internet of Production (IoP) is to enable a new level of crossdomain collaboration by providing semantically adequate and context-aware data from production, development and usage in real-time, on an adequate level of granularity.

With the concept of the IoP, unpredictable challenges - especially in connection with disruptive changes due to new technologies or digitization in all areas of society have to be faced. Future breakthroughs, for example in network technologies (5G networks) or computing power (quantum computers), would enable new alternative approaches to achieve our overall goals, which in turn also promise enormous opportunities. Therefore, an agile research management approach is pursued that allows to continuously adapt and develop the planned approach.
