In the year XNUMX ,the IWT was sponsored by the Zeppelin Foundation of the city of Friedrichshafen for several years Learning Factory Fallenbrunnen promised. The aim is to set up and operate a learning and demonstration center for production and production-related fields of application in the Campus Fallenbrunnen. Special focus is on research and knowledge transfer in the environment of the industry XNUMX.

Specifically, this means that the Lernfabrik Fallenbrunnen makes modern methods and processes in production and logistics understandable and tangible in order to create a basis for research activities as well as for the development of practical training and further education measures.


Get a first look at our learning factory and watch our short video. This is the result of a study work, which DHBW students have carried out within the framework of the Lernfabrik Fallenbrunnen.
