Research & Development

Since the itwh GmbH was founded, strong efforts were made to interlink research and application of state of the art engineering. The cooperation with several universities enables us to accumulate an extensive knowledge, which is put into further development of our know-how and our software products. Further the knowledge allows us to provide innovative solutions in engineering projects.

The following is a brief overview of research projects, which we were involved as applicants or collaborative partner.
