The task of the partnership management is the central control and coordination of the various project activities of SAFIR. Innovation management will control the entire innovation process of the network and create synergy potentials to other innovation processes and activities of the university. Communication Management is responsible for expanding internal and external communication while increasing SAFIR's visibility. The management project will focus on network management. The main focus is on linking SAFIR with the other research activities of the THI and the initiation of funding projects with partners in order to make SAFIR permanent network.

  • SAFIR provides a sustainable contribution to the realization of Vision Zero
