a lot may happen if two things come together: For example, a bond between solid and lightweight materials as created by hybrid compound forging may lead to better components. And robots let chips fly when they learn how to master drilling and milling jobs. Sometimes, even more than two things come together - like high potential for work and employment, strong infrastructure and dense production networks in metropolitan areas. A new research project supports companies in regional location planning.
Another highlight where two worlds meet: the experience day "Mädchen und Technik - MuT" (meaning Tech needs Girls), taking place on 19 November and hosted by the PZH. The aim of the girls-only workshop is to stimulate the girls' interest in STEM subjects. Read about this event and many others in our new issue of phi.
