Research and life in Lemgo

Science and quality of life at the same time in one place is not possible? IT IS! 

Few medium-sized cities combine high-tech with a picturesque, historic cityscape in this way - hardly any other region offers a higher density of competence and market leaders while maintaining a comfortable cost of living.

Fraunhofer IOSB-INA is located in the CENTRUM INDUSTRIAL IT (CIIT), a unique partnership between science and industry in Germany, on the campus of the OWL University of Applied Sciences in Lemgo. Lemgo is centrally located in the Ostwestfalen-Lippe (OWL) region, the eastern part of North Rhine-Westphalia. OWL is one of the most important German regions in the field of mechanical and plant engineering as well as automation technology and is located in a scenic area near the Teutoburger Wald.

SmartFactoryOWL, a cooperative project of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences, offers the ideal environment for technology enthusiasts to conduct hands-on research in the field of intelligent automation. By demonstrating the user benefits of Industry 4.0, companies are to be made aware of and informed about the potential of digitalization and intelligent automation.

With the LemGO Digital real lab, we support the digital transformation of medium-sized cities. Municipalities and their citizens, companies and research institutions are working together to develop digital solutions to everyday problems in the fields of mobility, commerce and the environment.
