Activities of the Working Group

The Working Group has set itself the following key targets in order to realize the vision defined for the future:

Intelligent, secure systems - Research competences for information and communication will be bundled so as to expand existing market positions using smart, secure systems while also opening up new business areas with respect to cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things.  


Networked digital services - Thuringia will strengthen its internationally competitive and visible E-competence, particularly in the sector of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), when it comes to design, tools, development methods and standards, and the management of electronic value-added service systems.


Creative digital worlds - Innovations derived from the core competences of the cross-sectoral field, particularly the potentials associated with the creative economy, will be used to satisfy the demand for new products and services in the converging digital environments of education, work, and home.
