Whether the target is sustainability and energy, healthy living or intelligent mobility, German companies are investing heavily in promising innovations. To ensure that this trend continues, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research has sent an “innovation ambassador” out onto the street. The InnoTruck primarily visits schools and showcases around 80 exhibits from the most innovative players in the fields of research, education and development. Freudenberg is also represented. The Safety Separator for lithium-ion batteries from Freudenberg Performance Materials consists of an ultra-thin, ceramic-impregnated nonwoven. It is flexible and extremely heat-resistant, making it one of the country’s selected top innovations.
Around 800 people visited the InnoTruck, which stopped at Freudenberg on November 19 and 20. They were impressed by the innovation strength of the individual exhibits and their interactive presentation. Many of the exhibits could not only be viewed, but also touched and tried out and via touch screens visitors could learn more about the respective projects. Some exhibits were equipped with tablets to be be used to scan a QR code that led visitors to further information, augmented reality graphics and videos.
