Cooperation Opportunities

At the ETA-Factory, we combine the four pillars research, learning factory, network and transfer with our activities as the research team „ETA | Energy Technologies and Application in Production“.

In all our activities, we value the importance of a bidirectional exchange within the cooperation with our involved partners – whether it is in the framework of our research projects, training courses, partner networks or transfer projects. At the PTW, this enables us to further manifest our position as one of the leading research institutes in the field of application-oriented and industry-related production research and to continually maintain the sensitivity for the latest trends and developments as the basis for the orientation of our scientific activities. Following, you will learn more about the general possibilities to get involved in our activities.


Bilateral Research and Development Projects or publicly subsidized joint projects with the PTW

Are you working on current problems and challenges in the research fields of energy efficiency, energy flexibility and resource efficiency at your company? Are you looking for a capable partner with whom you can explore new solution approaches? Then feel free to contact us! We have many years of experience in the domain of public-private partnerships and are constantly looking for innovative companies as strong project partners. Furthermore, there is the possibility for the joint implementation and supervision of student works.


Learning Factory

Training in the ETA-Factory on the Topic of Energy Efficiency in Production

Would you like to further educate yourself or your co-workers on the field of energy efficiency? We offer a broad training program at the ETA-Factory. During the workshops, we use the ETA-Factory as a learning environment to impart the theoretical teaching content true to the motto of „learning by doing“. Furthermore, you can participate in the continuous development of our learning environment and also place your products in the form of research and learning demonstrators in the ETA-Factory.


Jointly contributing to the Sustainable Production of Tomorrow

You are looking for a knowledge exchange to handle your problems more effectively? With a partnership in one of our networks, you can come into contact with the PTW as well as other industrial companies. Moreover, it is possible to associate with other interested parties and to address certain issues of the industrial production. In doing so, you can resort to the existing ETA research infrastructure. Through this balance between research and application, you can stay in the loop and can profit from and with like-minded associates on a technical level.
