The DIN and Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW) have met in late March to establish closer ties. The purpose of the meeting was to open up a dialogue on a number of current topics relevant to both parties and discuss ways of cooperating in innovative areas such as energy storage devices, Industry 4.0 and Smart Cities. The discussions mainly focussed on involving standardization in research projects at an early stage and on close cooperation in innovative and convergent topics. The meeting was chaired by HAW President Prof. Dr. Jacqueline Otten and Dr. Karlhanns Gindele, Member of DIN’s Management Board.
Energy Storage Devices, Mobility, Port 4.0, And Bioenergy Included In The Co-Operation
At the meeting, HAW and DIN agreed to co-operate on energy storage devices, mobility, “Port 4.0”, bioenergy, promoting standards in education, and making the DIN SPEC an inherent part of the university’s transfer strategy. It was agreed that the next steps to be taken – such as establishing responsibilities and prioritizing subjects – will be decided on during the coming weeks. In addition, HAW and DIN will meet regularly to discuss new topics.
