nICLAS 2023

At the Innovation Center for Laboratory Automation Stuttgart, or nICLAS for short, Fraunhofer IPA brings together manufacturers, users and researchers with different requirements for an interdisciplinary exchange. The forum on October 26, 2023 offers manufacturers, end users and research institutions a platform to network and gain insights into innovative technologies and automation solutions. The aim here is to build a needs-oriented bridge between research and industry. After all, the interdisciplinary field of laboratory automation requires a multidisciplinary team in order to compete successfully on an international level. Get an insight into our previous projects here, and get to know these and others even better at the end of October in the nICLAS labs in Stuttgart.

From the idea to implementation and testing, everything united in one place:

nICLAS – Bringing excellence to your laboratory.



  • Lab 4.0 (workshop sessions with different topics)
  • Try out new Lab 4.0 technologies for yourself
  • Exchange with Fraunhofer IPA experts and other participants


Target group

Industrial users, developers and researchers in the field of laboratory automation who want to experience the laboratory of the future hands-on


Benefit for the costumer

Participants get to know new technologies first-hand and can thus make a well-founded assessment of their potential for their own working environment. They learn interactively what the laboratory of the future will look like and where the opportunities and risks lie. In the exchange with the experts, they have the opportunity to bring in their individual questions and discuss possible solutions.
