AP7 Science Communication & Participation
Lead: Fraunhofer IMS, Dr. Gerd vom Bögel
The network is not intended to be a closed system but rather an open one, aiming to attract new research and industry partners. Therefore, in AP7, supporting concepts are considered. Through excellent scientific publications and workshops at national and international conferences, communication with scientific communities is improved for future cluster initiatives. On the other hand, industry workshops and public relations efforts are also intended to raise awareness of the topic among the general public. Particularly, raising awareness among the industry, students, and government entities is crucial for long-term success. The central point of contact in this regard is the network’s secretariat, which organizes the respective communication measures with the communication experts at the various locations.
