Type of institution
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft carries out research in hundreds of technology fields and makes the results available as patents, licenses, further training opportunities, and particularly in the form of research projects commissioned by industry. Innovation is dynamic – topics and research areas continue to adapt to market requirements and technologies.
A key element of the German government’s high-tech strategy is therefore to promote cluster initiatives. In the “Pact for Research and Innovation”, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has assumed the task of conceiving and implementing innovation clusters. Such collaborative ventures set themselves clear goals and define milestones for their development. The purpose of innovation clusters is to pool the strengths of a region and activate them to solve demanding tasks. In addition to industry and universities, the networks include local nonuniversity research institutes that can make important contributions in relevant thematic areas. Through this initiative, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is providing impetus for the further development of regional centers of excellence, and is supporting the regions’ skills and expertise. Innovationclusters will primarily serve as an instrument to help develop existing strengths. The collab-orations will generally be restricted to within one federal state. Another important factor is how much money the industrial partners and the state are willing to invest in new projects within a region in addition tocurrent expenditure.
Main research areas
The institute develops, implements and optimizes processes, products and equipment until they are ready for use and for the market. It works in all the application-relevant fields of expertise for contractual partners from industry and the public sector. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has consistently built up its structure on research groups. Flexible interlinking of expertise and capacities enables the institutes to meet extremely broad project requirements and complex system solutions.
