The challenges

Think outside the square – Round the corner! Develop a new virtual and / or physical vehicle corner concept to demonstrate enhanced mobility and agility for a standard passenger car. Create a modular, cost effective and lightweight system. The vehicle corner concept should combine the following functions in a smart, complete system that improves the vehicle’s performance: Drive, Recuperation Suspension and Steering. What’s an active vehicle corner module? Well, a car has 4 corners and that’s where you would place the wheels. Turn this area of the car into a active module!

Find a new approach to improve the way people live and build by using high-tech mortars and smart solutions. Mixing mortar might look simple, but it’s a science in itself: Every construction site is different, raw materials differ in quality, laborers lack know-how. At the same time, buildings become smarter, connected and digital. So how can we …





…and this Challenge is introduced best by someone you might know: “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Steve Jobs

Simply spoken, we are all about filtering, heating, cooling and quieting the automotive environment. But what if we took our technologies into a world outside of automotive? Make us dream and impress us with your impetuous & wild creativity and apply it to the latest top notch tech in the areas of sensors, robotics and AI. Will you take filtering, heating, cooling and quieting to the next level outside of our world?

use our competences and components to deliver new services for new markets and target groups

use new technology to create values in the areas of mobility, well-being and comfort for people and nature

Healthcare is a fascinating world. It’s the area where you wake up every day and you feel like you’re doing something for millions of people.

Help us tackling the untapped potential to reinvent patient experience.

Despite dramatically technology-driven developments in all areas of life, patient experience along the entire care episode has remained largely unchanged. Today’s patients are well informed consumers, and their expectations have helped set the benchmark when it comes to engagement, just as they have done in other areas, such as retail & financial services…

By investigating the entire customer journey and the value add chain of an painting job, we’ll create new ways from selecting the color, tinting the paint, application, … to writing an invoice – creative aspects of a “wall finishing” are welcome as well.

Let’s spray the future!
