The Fraunhofer IZM
annual review

What were the technology highlights of 2019? Which projects went particularly well, where is there still room for improvement? What new developments and trends can we expect in 2020? These were the questions posed by the four IZM department heads Rolf Aschenbrenner, Harald Pötter, Dr. Michael Schiffer and Dr. Olaf Wittler in conversation with Susann Thoma. And, this much can be said, all four are very satisfied with the results of their respective departments in the past year!
