The German Academic Association for Production Technology is a consortium of leading German professors of production technology. The 64 members from 37 university and Fraunhofer institutes stand for approximately 2,000 scientists of production technology. In the German scientific world as well as internationally, they have a high reputation and a worldwide network.
The WGP member institutes dispose of third-party funding far above average. The members’ laboratories show a high technical standard and allow top-level research as well as practice-oriented teaching.
The WGP does research in the field of basic research as well as applied and industrial research. At this, the technical orientation extends from the cutting and non-cutting production processes over the corresponding machines and plants, from robotics and assembly technology up to questions of production management, work structuring and production logistics.
