Allianz Industrie 4.0 Baden-Württemberg

Joining Forces to Shape the Industrial Future

Allianz Industrie 4.0 Baden-Württemberg is a network founded and sponsored by Germany’s federal state of Baden-Württemberg. Our aim is to pool technological expertise in production as well as IT and communications to provide support for medium-sized industrial companies in their shift towards Industrie 4.0. Our coordination office is located at the VDMA-Landesverband Baden-Württemberg.

Together with the network partners from companies, chambers of commerce, associations, institutes of applied research and social partners, we are striving to make Baden-Württemberg one of the world’s leading regions for Industrie 4.0 technologies.

Small and medium-sized companies play a key role here and are the focus of our work. The close integration of the various industries involved and fields of technology allows them to benefit from the Allianz to a particularly high degree.

To achieve this goal, we provide support and reinforcement through a comprehensive package of activities for the direct collaboration among all players.

Spokespersons of the Allianz Industrie 4.0 are Dr.-Ing. E.h. Manfred Wittenstein (Supervisory Board of Wittenstein SE) and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Bauernhansl (Director Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA and Director Institute of Industrial Manufacturing and
Management IFF, University of Stuttgart).
