Research and innovation for the global community

Research News / 6.5.2019

For 70 years now, the researchers at the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in Germany have been asking the right questions and finding answers – in the form of solutions that improve society and directly benefit the economy. This year marks an anniversary in the U.S., too: the establishment of Fraunhofer USA as a legally independent Fraunhofer affiliate 25 years ago. This non-profit organization was founded in 1994 to conduct applied research and development for customers from industry and from the federal and state governments in the U.S. With a history of more than 15 years now, the collaboration with Michigan State University (MSU) is a prime example of the continued success of this transatlantic research alliance.
