Transfer Network "Automotive goes Subsea"


The automotive sector is facing major challenges. A new societal understanding of environmental and climate protection, demographic change and urbanization, combined with technical developments such as electrification of drives, digitalization, and automation of vehicles and traffic, are creating a climate of change.

Companies in the automotive sector, especially SMEs, are highly innovative and have many years of experience in producing high-quality, reliable and robust technologies and products. They offer proven services and continue to develop them. These are optimal conditions for tapping the growing market in the field of marine and underwater technology. There, innovative solutions for autonomous systems, drive and control technologies as well as sensors and actuators, etc. are also necessary.

The connection of companies and institutions in the automotive sector as well as the maritime sector creates sustainable new value chains on the coast and inland. The network is also intended to initiate new, innovative research projects. Companies should be enabled to develop new technologies, which they need for market development. This should also create opportunities for new joint research projects. By identifying new research focal points and preparing new projects, a long-term transfer strategy will be pursued and realized.
