bauma Open Innovation
You’re probably familiar with this situation: You’re working on and puzzling over an innovation- or product development related challenge, but you just can’t find an adequate solution? Or you’re facing the “luxury problem” of developing or already possessing numerous potential solutions. However you’re wondering what other application scenarios outside of your industry these could be relevant for or in what other new markets they could provide value?
The bauma Open Innovation platform is the ideal starting point for your challenge. We offer you one central platform, where we bring organizations like yours together with a “solver community”. This community is an interdisciplinary group across multiple industries comprising members from the extensive Messe München International expert network and its world leading trade shows such as IFAT, electronica, BAU and many more.
This community possesses specific expert knowledge that could be relevant to your organization – in a bidirectional way: Either for identifying application scenarios for your developed solutions or for solving one of the challenges you’re facing.
There are no limits regarding the diversity or specificity of your challenge! Whether you are in need of a specific tool or technology to work on certain materials or you developed an adhesive for example that would be a good fit for the semiconductor industry – our community can help you answer these questions.
We help you both identify relevant experts for your challenge within our community as well as implement your project on the platform.
