The benchmarking study will be conducted over a period of 9 months. During the initial screening phase data is captured in a global context based on a questionnaire. In collaboration with our industrial and scientific expert network, promising approaches are further analyzed via case studies with the respective participants of the study. As part of the evaluation phase, the returned questionnaires are analyzed while all participants are provided with an individual positioning within the overall study results. Adhering to the overall motto “Learn from the best”, best-practices are shared across the successful-practice-companies and the consortium in the course of five company visits.
