Our Network

We've had a strong relationship with RWTH Aachen from the very start. Our network has expanded considerably since then, and we're happy to now have a diverse group of partners. We firmly believe that together we can achieve more.

UNIVERSITY PARTNERSHIPS

  • The RWTH Campus encourages open communication and close cooperation between the business and scientific communities. As a digital company, we love being a part of Engineering Valley and collaborating with the institutions and companies there.

  • The IBB Westfalen (Institute for construction operation and the construction industry) is an affiliated institute of the Münster University of Applied Sciences. Their main function is to stimulate the transfer of knowledge and technology between universities and industry. Our collaboration is based on a lively exchange of our practical experience and IBB's knowledge from research and teaching.

  • During Project Intercom, formitas teamed up with the Cologne University of Applied Sciences to develop a prototype for a collaboration and learning platform. The idea was to improve collaboration between planners in the office and the university within an open BIM process. The focus: a component-based chat allowing for flexible communication for everyone involved.
