Technology scouting

Regional technology scouts

The technology scouts within the Enabling Networks Münsterland project are experts in their field. They each represent an innovation competence field and have an overview of the corporate and research landscape in their area. They are at your side as a contact person, fill out our tech compass and provide you with regular ticker news in our tech ticker.

Their task is to scan the Münsterland region for technological competence carriers in a specific field of innovation competence. These can be companies or scientific institutions.

Get in touch now!

Do you have questions about a particular technology, are you looking for guidance or do you want to exchange ideas about your innovation? Then get in touch with the technology scouts! They look forward to hearing from you and will be happy to advise you on technological developments in Münsterland. Maybe they will help you as a company to come up with the next innovation?

Tech scouts from five partner organisations

The tech scouts are provided by five partner organisations with high expertise. These have an overview of technological developments in their innovation competence fields and can use their network to involve further experts. At this point, Enabling Networks works together with bioanalytik Münster e.V., Netzwerk Oberfläche NRW e.V. the IWARU of Münster University of Applied Sciences, the Transfer Agency of Münster University of Applied Sciences and with the Mechatronics Institute Bocholt of the Westphalian University of Applied Sciences.

The Münsterland Tech Compass: Click through!

The Tech-Kompass Münsterland provides orientation in the technology jungle. It documents the essential technological developments in the five innovation competence fields: Engineering Pro, Sustainable Eco, Digital Solutions, Life Science and Materials and Surfaces. These are precisely the topics in which our technology scouts are experts.

In the compass you will find regional experts and best practice examples on selected technologies as well as more information on individual technologies and start-ups.
