Consortium Benchmarking and Studies

The consortium projects carried out by FIR are among the most effective ways to successfully integrate external knowledge into your own company. On the basis of topics and criteria jointly defined in the consortium, the individual companies whose working methods are particularly innovative and groundbreaking are identified in our consortium benchmarking studies. In subsequent company visits, the consortium partners benefit from the exemplary activities of these "successful practice companies" by gaining important insights and suggestions for their own companies.

In a consortium study, the companies involved are contribute to formulating the addressed research questions.
