We bring research to the streets

The August-Wilhelm Scheer Institute is a vision that has become reality - the vision that research works in an exploitation-oriented manner, that digitalization conserves resources and enables people to work in a meaningful way, and that is precisely why the world will be made a little bit better. We have been working on this as an independent and private digitalization institute for almost 10 years.

We are the pioneers of digital change and help companies of all kinds to fully exploit the possibilities of digital transformation. In our research, consulting and digitalization projects, we use our co-innovation approach to address the customer's problem. Our goal is to change products, processes and the mindset in the long term. This is how digital value is created.

Our credo: True digitalization is more than just technology.

“We have had very good experiences with our pilot project with the August-Wilhelm Scheer Institute on the subject of digital product passports and have achieved the same result. The cooperation was characterized by the highest motivation on the part of the August-Wilhelm Scheer Institute and the independence and personal responsibility in the processing of the project and the tasks set was outstanding. We were also very impressed by the short distances and quick reactions. Extremely important to have such competence available in our region. It was a lot of fun for us and we will definitely take the next step together – we are currently planning further cooperation.”
