1 Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU Initiatives in the East German State of Saxony in R & D Infrastructure Development F. Treppe

2 State of Saxony Capital: Dresden
Leipzig Dresden Chemnitz Capital: Dresden Strong industry focus with traditional markets in Middle and Eastern Europe Inhabitants: 4, 321, 437 Size: 18, 414 km² Source: Statist. Landesamt Sachsen

3 The Origin of Machine Building in Germany
Distribution of Factories in 1846 Weltausstellung Paris 1867, Stand der Firma Zimmermann “... examples for german diligence, rare work and in the past not known perfectibility and expansion in the machine building branch“

4 Today‘s Machine Tool Industry in the State of Saxony Represented by 450 SMEs with a total of 34,000 employees printing machinery machine tools textile machinery

5 EU Structural Funds in Saxony (2000 – 2006)
In combination with the required co-financing through governmental and private sources a total investment fund of almost 10 billion Euro is available. 0,7 1,1 3,3 Expected results: GDP growth of 2 % employment rate 1 % higher than without availability of the funds bn €

6 ERDFs in Saxony (2000 – 2006) Focus 1: Promoting competitiveness of small and medium sized enterprises Focus 2: Infrastructure Focus 3: Protection and improvement of the environment Focus 4: Technical assistance More than 25 % of the ERDFs support the regions and cities of Chemnitz, Dresden and Leipzig

7 ERDFs in Saxony (2000 – 2006) Selected Goals within Focus 1
To promote the development of new products and processes by funding 750 R&D projects of single companies or industry-oriented research centers with a total of 262 million EUR To promote the development of new products and processes by funding 1650 R&D projects of consortia between industry (primarily SMEs) and industry-oriented research centers with a total of 313 million EUR To promote technology transfer by funding 340 projects of technology transfer centers, incubators, technology demonstration centers etc. with a total of 43 million EUR To assist SMEs in participating in EU programs (140 projects, 3.5 million EUR) To assist SMEs in accessing new markets (3300 projects, 12.5 million EUR)

8 ERDFs in Saxony (2000 – 2006) Selected Goal within Focus 2
To fund and support infrastructure and applied research projects at universities and research institutes with the goal to establish an R&D infrastructure at worldclass level institutional priority is given to the set-up and growth of Fraunhofer Institutes technology priorities are given to new materials, microelectronics, production technology, information technology and traffic systems

9 ERDFs Allocated from 1994 - 2006 for the Improvement of the R & D Infrastructure in Saxony
EU Funding ERDF Funds State Funds Total Funds Number of Number of Period million EUR million EUR million EUR Funded Funded R&D Projects Institutions as of as of 1 number includes applied R & D projects which consumed about 10 % of the funds 2 number includes 10 Fraunhofer Institutes

10 Major R & D Providers and Recipients of ERDF in the State of Saxony
Leipzig Dresden 5 Universities 5 Professional schools for technology and economics 10 Fraunhofer Institutes 7 Max-Planck Institutes 7 Leibniz Institutes Chemnitz

11 Co-financed with Means of the ERDF BIOCITY Leipzig
A center with m2 space for biotechnology companies and research groups. 25 % of the space is used by the university 75 % of the space is dedicated to business (start-ups and established companies) Total investment: 35 million EUR ERDF support: 17.1 million EUR

12 Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in Germany
Itzehoe Berlin Golm Magdeburg Hannover Braunschweig Bremen Oberhausen Dortmund Duisburg Aachen Euskirchen Schmallenberg St. Augustin Ilmenau Jena Dresden Chemnitz Würzburg Erlangen Pfinztal Darmstadt Kaiserslautern St. Ingbert Saarbrücken Karlsruhe Stuttgart Freiburg Freising Leipzig 58 Institutes at approx. 40 locations Employees €1 billion Research budget

13 170 engineers and scientists Research Focus:
Co-financed with Means of the ERDF Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology Fh IWU in Numbers: 170 engineers and scientists 130 students and trainees 16 Mio. € annual budget Research Focus: Machine tools Mechatronics Forming technology Precision technology in Chemnitz and Dresden Chemnitz Dresden Chemnitz Dresden Primary Networking with: Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (58 Institutes of applied research) Universities in Saxony, Germany and worldwide Automotive industry (OEMs) and their suppliers German and European machine tool builders

14 Example 1 for IWU’s regional R & D platforms Mechanical Engineering Initiative Next Economy – MAINE
I&C-Technologies for Mechanical Engineering Coordinated by Fraunhofer IWU currently more than 20 mostly Saxon companies work on altogether 19 sub-projects with a total project volume of about 28 Mio. € . ThyssenKrupp Drauz Presswerk Hydroforming Project Partners

15 Example 2 for IWU’s regional R & D platforms
Fraunhofer IWU Competence Centre Mechanical Engineering “KMC” Association of finalists, component suppliers, research institutions and service providers under the R&D guidance of the Fraunhofer IWU, established in 1998 Unites about 30 companies and research institutions with approximately 4000 employees Annual turnover of the KMC members is about 500 Mio. € Objectives: Common research projects Offering complete system solutions Joint purchase pool RAWEMA NILES-SIMMONS SCHÖNHERR

16 Example 3 for IWU’s regional R & D platforms
Strategic Alliance of Machine Tool and Equipment Manufacturers „VEMAS „ VEMAS promotes innovation and initiates market-driven technology or business networks R & D Consultants Networks Associations Service Providers Suppliers Machine Builders Plant Builders

17 Summary and Outlook Structural funds had and will continue to have significant impact on driving economic growth in the State of Saxony through innovation, qualification and entrepreneurship. Innovation, science, research and education will continue to set the focus of the new funding period from 2007 – 2013 The plan for further expanding the R & D infrastructure calls again for a concentration on Fraunhofer Institutes as well as competence and technology centers at universities and educational academies. Applied R&D projects will focus on energy technology, micro- and nanoelectronics, biotechnology and materials Improvement of technology transfer will play a major role in future funding. Infrastructure related ERDFs will for the first time be used to improve IT services.
