Research and Development

The esw GROUP is responding to current megatrends such as digitalisation and zero-emission manufacturing by actively participating in bilateral and publicly funded projects.

In interdisciplinary projects with universities, IT companies as well as customers and suppliers, the opportunities of digitalisation, artificial intelligence and emission-free production are explored and implemented. For this purpose, the available data, the existing production facilities and the expertise of our employees are brought in.
