Product and Process Ergonomics in Aachen

Come, help us shape the future of work!

Digitalization creates new technological fundamentals and possibilities. It offers a diverse array of opportunities for technological innovation in companies and makes a significant contribution to transformative development in society and industry.

But how can digital technologies be deployed to improve the productivity, health, satisfaction and safety of people in the workplace? What undesirable effects might digital technologies entail? And what strategies can be adopted to counteract these effects? These are precisely the questions that the Product and Process Ergonomics department at the Fraunhofer FKIE seeks to answer.

Our team is based in the research and innovation hub of Aachen and is closely linked to the RWTH Aachen University Institute of Industrial Engineering and Ergonomics (IAW). Working with partners from academia and industry, we develop concepts and tools to ensure a successful digital transformation.
