As a cooperative we are active in many areas. The ELMUG specialist groups were formed with the aim of jointly and economically more effectively addressing a market segment that is relevant or interesting for the members. The fields of joint cooperation to achieve this goal vary. They range from the joint formulation and marketing of a range of services to the goal of developing and implementing a joint technology roadmap.


It is the responsibility of the specialist groups to define the objectives and measures of their joint work.

For innovative medium-sized companies and start-ups, cooperations contribute significantly to their business success. The advantages of a cooperation range from cost savings and better perception to larger projects and orders that are processed jointly.
