DigiTain project meeting

The DigiTain (Digitalization for Sustainability) research project for the fully digital product development of sustainable electric drive architectures is in high gear.

Around 120 participants from the consortium came together in a hybrid format for the third DigiTain project meeting on January 18, 2024. The 90 participants who traveled to the site were welcomed by the project partners Fraunhofer Institute for High-Speed Dynamics (EMI), the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials (IWM) and the Institute for Sustainable Technical Systems (INATECH) in Freiburg. After the welcoming address by Dr. Norbert Dölle (Mercedes-Benz, project coordinator) and Prof. Dr. Frank Schäfer (Fraunhofer EMI, host & project partner), the focus was on the current status of the work packages and the report on the goals and milestones achieved by the WP leaders. Once again, the participants took the opportunity to discuss further research work and interfaces in workshops and to plan the next steps. The next DigiTain project meeting will take place in July 2024 at the project partner Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) in Ulm.
