The Fraunhofer EU Office in Brussels connects Fraunhofer management and researchers to the European research and innovation landscape. Our mission is to support the Fraunhofer Executive Board and the institutes on EU research topics, to proactively bring those topics to the awareness of Fraunhofer and to provide orientation through our EU expertise. Furthermore, we represent Fraunhofer positions in the context of European research and innovation policy and initiate strategic research collaborations through our excellent, European and Fraunhofer network.
We thus provide a unique platform for communication and collaboration with European institutions and other partner organizations in Brussels to showcase the significance of applied research and innovation.
The promotion of equal opportunities in research and innovation is an important objective for the EU Commission, which the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft supports with a commitment signed by the Executive Board.
The "Gender Equality Plan" is accessible to all Fraunhofer employees on the intranet. It provides an overview of the status quo, goals and measures for the promotion of equal opportunities at Fraunhofer.
