EIT Manufacturing Central Further Expands Its Innovation Ecosystem: 5-HT is New Cooperation Partner

With 5-HT Digital Hub Chemistry & Health, the innovation community wins over a well-connected cooperation partner in order to integrate start-up companies, SMEs and corporate groups from the Metropolitan Region Rhine-Neckar to benefit from pan-European funding programmes. The aim is to make the production and manufacturing industries future-proof.

“5-HT is very well-connected, both with start-ups and SMEs and with the big chemical, pharmaceutical, and industrial players in the region,” Dr. Christian Bölling, Managing Director of EIT Manufacturing Central gGmbH describes the new cooperation partner. “The chemical-pharmaceutical industry is subject to strong pressure with regard to innovation in the face of intense competition. Digitisation and the circular economy have changed the way they produce. They need to act.”
