The DIGIMARI project addresses the digital transformation of small and medium-sized (SME) production companies.
The acronym of the project translates into "Digital Manufacturing Research Initiative".
The project has been launched in Central Hesse. The region located right in the middle of Germany,
is strong in manufacturing and research.
The Kansai region is located in the heart of Japan.
