The Fraunhofer Gesellschaft at 70 – A Time to Celebrate!
Fraunhofer IZM opened its doors on Friday for a very special celebration in honour of 70 years of the Fraunhofer Society. Under the motto of „70 Years of Future – #WHATSNEXT“, the people of the Institute used the occasion to reminisce and to look ahead to a bright future for their work.
The Institute’s Director, Professor Klaus-Dieter Lang, opened the event with a brief statement, thanking not just the assembled researchers and scientists, but also their families. Together with many other current and former members and loyal partners and friends of the Institute, they had a chance to get active at one of the many attractions brought to the historical site in Berlin’s Wedding district: From a challenging climbing parkour with no less than 25 degree overhang for the athletically inclined or a paint-your-own-cup place for more creative spirits to many culinary highlights, the event had something in store for everybody.
One thing is certain after this milestone in the Society’s history – even after 70 years of continued research, we remain curious and optimistic about the many challenges ahead! www.fraunhofer.de/de/70-jahre-fraunhofer.html
