Research Dedicated to the Future

Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization. Our research efforts are geared entirely to people’s needs: health, security, communication, energy and the environment. As a result, the work undertaken by our researchers and developers has a significant impact on people’s lives. We are creative. We shape technology. We design products. We improve methods and techniques. We open up new vistas. In short, we forge the future.

Does Work!

Why not. It does work. It does function. There must be a way.

Does work - two little words with a powerful message. They stand for independent thinking, persistence, determination, single-mindedness, tenacity and the spirit of research. They stand for Fraunhofer. Say »Does work«. Keep pushing the limits.
Always trying something new. Think out the box.

This is the principle of Fraunhofer. Because we won't rest satisfied with a simple Yes or No. Because where others give up, we come up with ideas. Because we want to make sure that at the end of every project, it can be said: Does work.
