The Head of the Leo Baeck Institute in New York Visits IPK

Fraunhofer IPK welcomed Dr. Miriam Bistovic of the Berlin branch of the Leo Baeck Institute International and Dr. William H. Weitzer, Chief of the Leo Baeck Institute in New York on January 24, 2018. Together with Dr. Bertram Nickolay they discussed opportunities to use virtual reconstruction technology in support of the work of the institutes. Topics were the reconstruction of damaged documents and the proper scanning and presenting of documents via the Internet. The Leo Baeck Institute is an association of three independent documentation and research institutes, which preserve the history and culture of German-speaking Jewish people. Leo Baeck Institutes exist in New York, London and Jerusalem, the centers of Jewish emigration.

Collaboration Plans

Industrie 4.0 for the Oriental Republic of Uruguay

In the beginning of February 2017, Carolina Cosse, the Minister for Industry, Energy and Mining in Uruguay, visited Fraunhofer IPK. Following a preparatory visit of Alberto Guani Amarilla, Uruguay's ambassador to Germany in 2016, Mrs. Carolina Cosse and director of Fraunhofer IPK, Professor Uhlmann signed a »Memorandum of Understanding on Applied Research, Innovation and Industrie 4.0«. 

After an introductory presentation featuring the Fraunhofer model, the functioning of Fraunhofer IPK and its Industrie 4.0 activities, Mrs. Carolina Cosse was informed about specific projects during a walk through the institute. The focus was on condition monitoring using cloud systems, flexible robot-assisted processing and the human-centered automation, which the engineers demonstrated using collaborating robot systems. The next step planned in the collaboration is a workshop with industry representatives in Montevideo before the end of 2017.
