The FIR’s innovation labs serve as research environments for joint work in the cluster and the centers. There are various facilities, technical equipment, IT aids and toolsets, which can be used for joint research, prototype development and implementation testing.
In the ERP Innovation Lab, research is being conducted into how different integrated business applications systems and different forms of organisation can be networked with and among each other, and which technologies and standards are required to realise an optimal exchange of information.
The work in the Smart Systems Innovation Lab serves to research, optimise and further develop the provision of information by smart systems. Besides the technical consideration of smart systems, the focus is on the dimension of the application context. Smart systems can support the implementation of new, cybernetic approaches in production and logistics and enable the design of new integrated services.
Under the motto “Invent the Future of Services”, FIR develops innovative services in the Service Science Innovation Lab together with partners from industry. The process from the service idea to the market-ready service is supported and accelerated by innovative methods and tools, whereby the resulting services are made tangible through various media.
The theme park is located in the middle of the innovation labs and connects them with the atrium area. It functions as an exhibition space and offers the opportunity to present demonstrators to make research content tangible for the visitor. At the same time, the structure of the park allows for interactive discussion rounds.
The conference centre of the Smart Logistics Cluster on RWTH Aachen Campus combines all types of event space. On the one hand, you have the possibility to use our conference and meeting rooms for your meetings. On the other hand, the large atrium area of the cluster allows you to hold in-house exhibitions with up to 30 stands. We are also happy to provide you with catering if you wish.
