WHY DID WE JOIN
The Fraunhofer Innovation Platform for Advanced Manufacturing (FIP-AM@UT) focuses on all aspects of advanced manufacturing. We are a leading R&D facility in the Netherlands and it is important to be connected other leading centers, like Perron038. A collaborative outlook is important to us, because we realise that no single centre can provide all the answers. By working with Perron038, we can assure that the resulting solutions we provide together can be greater than just the sum of the parts.
