The project

Digital change is tangible, especially in Main-Franconia. There is barely any economic area that is not impacted by digitalisation. The companies in the leading areas of mechanical engineering and automotive with their 55,000 employees, transformation is the decisive driver.

With our regional innovation network, we want to support our small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and together strengthen the industrial location of Main-Franconia.

The initiative for ongoing success of mechanical engineering & automotive in Main-Franconia

The leading sectors mechanical engineering and automotive are facing major changes. Changes that will shape Main-Franconia's future. Actively and successfully shaping this change is the set goal of the transformation offensive for the Regiopolis region of Main-Franconia transform.RMF. Together with the SMEs from mechanical engineering and automotive, transform.RMF will boost regional potentials, create rooms for innovation, and create a Main-Franconian transformation roadmap that will dynamically lead us into the future.

Science and economy hand in hand

For this initiative, Region Mainfranken GmbH and the Technical University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt are collaborating in this strong affiliate project that drives cooperation and knowledge transfer between economy and science. In this, transform.RMF informs, advises, and connects the regional SMEs. Various offers like interactive teaching formats, Living Labs and varying exchange formats open up professional dialogue and reduce barriers.

How do you best face the challenges resulting from digitalisation, demographic change and the trends of the global automotive industry?

Ideally together! Exchanging experiences and networking are the keys to innovative and sustainable transformation. Our networking platform increases the transparency of the regional competences and connects you with others. A strong transformational network.
