Statement on the Covid 19 situation

March 20, 2020

The corona pandemic presents us with major challenges. Infection numbers are increasing exponentially and in recent days more and more countermeasures have been ordered by the authorities.

Both the president of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and the director of Fraunhofer IZM have set up crisis teams that evaluate the news and the current situation on a daily basis. We receive daily information from these crisis teams, the federal government and the Berlin state government about measures and restrictions aimed at slowing down the spread of the virus.

We would like to inform all our partners about this special situation. Fraunhofer IZM in Berlin has been told by the Berlin Senate to keep up an on-site emergency operation. This means that we can only act under certain restrictions that will likely also impact our projects and our partners. We will do our utmost to prevent delays and complications in the projects.

Our Dresden branch IZM-ASSID works according to the guidelines of the Free State of Saxony.

Detailed questions about specific projects and their status are answered by the project managers.

Our main concern now is the well-being of our employees and their families.

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to a continued successful cooperation.

If you have any questions about our activities, please contact our business development team.
