The AWS-Institute for digitized products and processes (AWSi) was founded in 2014 to foster research and innovation. The Institute focuses on digitization of economy and society. Digitized Consulting, Blended Learning, Industry 4.0, Digitized Business Models and Processes are our main topics.
Our approach to innovation
Innovation is more than just raising new ideas or implementing technologies. It is about generating economic impact. This clearly marks the center of our work. We are an innovation hub that enables the digital transformation. Our ideas will be implemented
as software prototypes that are evaluated by partners and customers. In an iterative process, these solutions are continuously improved. This is our way to create market-ready products.
We understand digitization in two ways
Gradual digitization is the continuous and steady process of transforming existing products and processes into digital ones.
Disruptive digitization focuses on the question which products and processes can become obsolete due to digitization and how these will be substituted.
Thus, the focus of our work is on both gradual and disruptive digitization in different industries, e.g. Manufacturing, Consulting and Education.
Our research focuses
AWSi is an incubator for start ups. We offer support in the conception stage, we can provide access into established business community networks and we enable a test bed for validating business ideas in a controlled and supported environment. AWS-Institute is an innovation hub that anticipates future streams and combines research with entrepreneurship.
