The Fraunhofer Chile Research - Center for Systems Biotechnology (FCR-CSB) is the first research center launched by the Fraunhofer Chile Research Foundation which was established on October 4, 2010. Staff at the Centre work closely with Chilean research organizations and aim to provide research services for a broad range of public and private enterprises not only in Chile but also the wider South American region. The Center will make a long-lasting contribution to Chile’s pioneering spirit and economic strength by supporting the country’s traditional economies based upon raw materials, agriculture, aquaculture and the sustainable use of natural resources.
On May 28th 2015, the Fraunhofer Chile Research Center for Solar Energy Technologies (FCR-CSET) was opened in Santiago.
The purpose of the FCR-CSET is to support the development of a sustainable solar economy in Chile, with the assistance of Fraunhofer ISE’s vast experience in the field.
The main focus will be the production and storage of electricity and process heat as well as water treatment using solar energy.
With particular emphasis on regional implementation, the further development shall be of solar thermal and photovoltaic technologies and applications with partners from research and industry.
