Infosys said it has set up a digital innovation centre in Dusseldorf, Germany to support clients in digital transformation in the region.

The Centre would help Infosys work more closely with its clients in their digital transformation journey, while focusing on next-generation business suites such as SAP HANA, as well as cloud based services, internet of things, 5G, artificial intelligence and machine learning, said the company in a press release.

The innovation hub would also serve as a link between businesses and the leading educational establishments in Germany in a move to bridge the STEM (science technology engineering and mathematics) talent gap in the region.

Infosys said there would be strategic partnerships with regional academic institutions such as Hochschule Dusseldorf - University of Applied Sciences and WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management to work on joint training courses, research and scholarships.

The new Centre in Dusseldorf is part of Infosys’ global network of Digital Innovation centres and will work with the company’s Digital Design Studio in Berlin.

The Bengaluru-headquartered tech services major now operates from across 20 European countries and has more than 14,000 employees who help service clients in a range of industries, including financial services, life sciences, utilities, manufacturing and retail. Earlier this year the company launched a Digital Innovation Center, as well as a Cyber Defence Center in Bucharest, Romania. Infosys also expanded its footprint in the UK with the opening of an Experience Design and Innovation Studio in London.

“This investment in Germany builds on Infosys’ long-standing commitment to Europe, our investment in developing a highly skilled workforce, and our focus on achieving breakthrough innovation for our clients," Pravin Rao, Chief Operating Officer, Infosys, was quoted saying.
