The Innovation Laboratory Hybrid Services in Logistics is an interdisciplinary research project in which technological innovations are developed for a social networked industry. One focus is on human-technology interaction. The design of innovations for hybrid services is ensured by so-called showcases in five areas: Trade, production logistics, transport, maintenance and virtual training.

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is funding the project with a total of 10 million euros over a period of three years. On the one hand, the innovation laboratory is intended to strengthen the digital pioneering role of the Dortmund location with regard to services and logistics and, on the other hand, to accelerate the acceptance and introduction of new technical solutions in the industry 4.0 environment. Project partners of the innovation laboratory are the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML in Dortmund, the Fraunhofer Institute for Design Technology Mechatronics IEM in Paderborn and TU Dortmund University with the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the research area Industrial and Labour Research.

In addition, numerous network partners are involved in the research work - including other Fraunhofer institutes and initiatives, universities and network partners such as the Future Work Lab from Stuttgart, the leading edge clusters it´s OWL, EffizienzCluster Logistik e.V, and the Industrial Data Spaces Association. Social partners like IG Metall (trade union) and the German Federation of Unions (DGB), as well as other related organisations, clubs and associations, are highly relevant to the success of the innovation laboratory.
