The research and technology center EcoMaT deals with the subject of lightweight construction as forward-looking technology focusing at its holistic systemic importance through interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral cooperation. Around 500 people from science and industry perform research and develop together under one roof on approximately 22.000 square meters close to Bremen airport. From an application-oriented perspective, technologies are systemically observed and analyzed. This includes the integration of the technological insights in the manufacturing process. Through short distances and joint projects, the innovation processes are expedited and can already be used across industries at an early stage of development. In addition, the proximity also allows the joint use of laboratory facilities.
In EcoMaT the Airbus group will be the anchor tenant together with TESTIA GmbH and the Fibre (Fiber Institute Bremen). More than 10 additional tenants like the DLR, Daimler and Broetje-Automation are involved in EcoMaT. Investor and owner of the EcoMaT is the Business Development Agency of Bremen (WFB Wirtschaftsförderung Bremen GmbH). The EcoMaT will go into service in the beginning of 2019.
