Opening of the Innovation Laboratory Digitalization INNODIG

Opening of the Innovation Laboratory Digitalisation INNODIG. The project is funded by the Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung.

On Monday, January 13, 2020, the "Innovation Laboratory for Digitalization" funded by the Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung was opened at the Umwelt-Campus Birkenfeld in the presence of the Minister of Science RLP Prof. Dr. Konrad Wolf.

The Innovation Laboratory Digitization INNODIG is a MakerSpace for the interdisciplinary implementation of creative projects, funded by the Carl-Zeiss-Sti u ngs. A wide range of tools from virtual reality, IoT and AI, applied process engineering and design to additive manufacturing are available there to quickly implement new ideas on the subject of digitisation in the form of prototypes. The first lighthouse project is the prototypical development of an emersed bioreactor for cyanobacteria. Mechanical engineering, process engineering and computer science form the common basis for a digital twin, which is optimised by methods of machine learning.
