  • Entry-level solutions, also called Frugal Innovations, bridge the gap between high quality and low price with Smart Simplicity. InnoFrugal, Europe’s most renowned conference on Frugal Innovation, was first launched by the Nordic Frugal Innovation Society in Helsinki in 2015. In cooperation with the University of Cambridge and Ignitho Technologies, InnoFrugal presented its first UK edition in Manchester last year. The first German edition in 2019 is an industry-oriented event packed with practical examples and selected scientific findings. InnoFrugal Germany is organized by Fraunhofer’s Center for Frugal Products and Manufacturing Systems in Stuttgart.

  • Constant technological development due to industry 4.0 enables a growing automation and digitation in a broad field from production technology up to everyday work processes. Human-machine networking plays an important role in this. Thus, the growing demand of sensors and actuators leads to an increased need in novel technology such as electroactive polymer (EAP) technology. Basic research and the beginning of transfer of EAP technology into industry has already shown the great potential of EAPs and has led to worldwide interest in EAP technology while industrializing EAPs still is challenging.
