In addition to the technological and application-specific thematic field, the Consortium has established the cross-disciplinary field of Strategy & Management, which contains the following focus areas:
- management of all operational and strategic tasks of the Consortium
- coordination of scientific-technical cooperation
- innovation management
To accomplish this, analogous to the technological R&D work, projects for developing and updating strategy, for developing and testing suitable management structures and tools, and for innovation management will be undertaken.
