ELABO works closely together with Fraunhofer, the biggest research institution for application-focused research in Europe. Fraunhofer’s fields of research include healthcare, safety/security, communication, mobility, energy and the environment.

One noteworthy result of this partnership was the event ‘A World of Networked Systems. Digitalisation in the Factory of the Future’, which was held in Crailsheim in September 2017. Würth Industrie Service GmbH & Co. KG also participated in the event alongside ELABO and Fraunhofer.
