November 12 and 13, 2015, a delegation from Trondheim (Norway) visited the RWTH Aachen University . Especially the developments of technological devices, such as the Integrative Production Technology for High-Wage Countries or the developments on campus Melaten and the entire campus concept aroused great interest among the Norwegians. The aim of the Norwegian government is to promote the production technology in Norway and to establish itself as a possible alternative to the less promising oil market. Topics of the meeting were research projects in the context of "Industrie 4.0" and the topics of the Cluster of Excellence "Integrative Production Technology for High-Wage Countries". Finally, the WZL and the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology (IPT) were visited and a discussion opened on future opportunities in collaboration.
