The Hannover Messe Trade Fair, taking place from 23rd to 27th of April 2018 was a huge success for the Fortissimo Project with highly interesting demonstrations, plenty of guests, visitors, fancy competitions and great prizes. With more than 5000 exhibitors from all over the world the trade fair offers a tremendous opportunity to present achievements around all key achievements. One highlight presented at the trade fair is the cloud-based shape optimization in manufacturing focusing mainly on the improvement of numerical simulation. This case was further showcased by the presentation of a green Lamborghini Aventador S.
In addition, the Fortissimo Project leveraged the fair to host several prominent personalities at the respective stand (Hall 6, G46). Amongst others EU commissioner for Budget and Human Ressources Günther Öttinger, a member of the European Parliament Reinhard Bütikofer and a German delegation. With the opportunity to meet several experts at the booth, i.e. from Arctur (a Slovenian company offering advanced solutions in the fields of cloud computing, high-performance computing, project management, web and mobile systems and data warehousing solutions) or EPPC (an Edinburgh based leading European center of excellence in advanced research, technology transfer, and the provision of high-performance computing services to academia and industry), the Fortissimo Project was able to demonstrate a major competitive advantage relying on the winning partner ecosystem and the high class research.
