FADZ Sponsoring Society

The aim of the Sponsoring Society is to promote science, research and education. With this in mind, it supports the establishment, development and operations of the Forschungs- & Anwendungszentrum für digitale Zukunftstechnologien [short form: FADZ / Lichtenfels Center of Next Generation Digital Technologies] in Lichtenfels as a joint research and transfer center for regional companies and Coburg University.

By bringing together universities, further education establishments, regional companies, facilities of national and public institutions, associations and other sponsors from politics, business and society, we aim to create a new momentum for the future development of business, science and research and help shape digital change in the regional economy.

‘The general aim of FADZ [Lichtenfels Center of Next Generation Digital Technologies] is to put in place digital strategies through training, further education and knowledge transfer across all sectors. To do this, we need to get people involved through training and further education. Our companies and workforce will have to make fundamental changes to adapt to the digital revolution.’

Frank Carsten Herzog, Chairman
