Annual Reports

Fraunhofer facilities do application-oriented research. The information and acquisition of new partners is strongly based on PR work, specifically on Internet platforms.

Documents and quotes are always being updated by the central media service of the Fraunhofer Society.

Search our research & work fields, talks and publication overviews. Studies and expert opinions are prepared to order.

In preparing these, we use Fraunhofer-Publica, the interdisciplinary bibliographical database.
