for Industry Partners#
The archetypal cooperation: A company sees a need for research and development, to launch an innovative product, to improve a process, or to audit and certify its processes. A call to Fraunhofer will reveal which solutions are possible, which type of cooperation is most promising, and how much effort would be involved. Our cooperation partnerships – from closely circumscribed interventions to large-scale initiatives – are committed to solving problems and bringing innovative solutions into the market.
In addition to targeted individual commissions from our partners in industry, Fraunhofer IZM provides a comprehensive range of services from the development of technology demonstrators, the construction of prototypes, lab cooperation (technical facilities in shared use) to many other more specialized needs of our clients and partners.
The transfer of technology is one of the core services of Fraunhofer IZM: It is the purpose of our institute to transfer technological and procedural knowhow into commercially productive applications. We forge the link between science and the economy to power the global sharing and monetization of technological expertise at an elite level.
Fraunhofer IZM is a driving force between many promising technological innovations. Our work has become the basis for many strong and lasting partnerships with private enterprises. One example of this is our embedding line, through which Fraunhofer IZM and our partner engineers show how embedding technology can be put to use in everyday industrial operations. The Security Lab run in conjunction with the Bundesdruckerei is another case study of how cooperative development work can result in technologies for the secure documents of the future.
