bauma ‘Research live’: Information Center for Universities and Institutes


“Research Live” International Information Center

What’s the status quo of research and science? What topics have an influence on the industry? What's in the pipeline? Research live—11th International Information Center for Universities and Institutes will provide insights here. The topics range from Building 4.0 and IoT to innovative building and extraction technologies and efficient component solutions, modern operating environments and autonomous machines and processes.

‘Research live’ will present itself with a new concept and a new location in the foyer of the International Congress Center Munich (booth ICM.310 and ICM.309). The international exhibition of universities and scientific institutes brings us up to speed with the latest research in an interdisciplinary manner. On site: staff and students from 21 departments 14 universities.

What the ten booths and the Info Point Study (Booth ICM.307) on the 300 m² exhibition space will offer? Latest research results on construction machinery, building material plants and mining technology. In addition, five start-ups and spin-offs will highlight the economic potential of research projects—including several bauma Innovation Award finalists and nominees.
