WITg, Institute for Materials System Technology Thurgau
Our profile: Development, Research and Network
On the initiative of the cantonal government of Thurgau, the starting point was given in 2002 for the foundation of WITg. The WITg is regarded as competence center of the regional industry (CH/D) in material questions and serves as a link between industry (application) and university (science & research). In addition, the institute is characterized by cross-border activities and extensive experience in the field of knowledge transfer. This is also expressed by the two sponsors: the Thurgau Foundation for Science and Research and the HTWG Konstanz University of Applied Sciences.
