Research and Development
We develop, implement and optimize processes, products and equipment until they are ready for use and for the market. We work in all the application-relevant fields of expertise for contractual partners from industry and the public sector. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has consistently built up its structure on research groups. Flexible interlinking of expertise and capacities enables the institutes to meet extremely broad project requirements and complex system solutions.
Our seas and oceans offer diverse economic opportunities, such as transportation, energy generation and a valuable source of renewable resources. With their wide range of expertise, Fraunhofer researchers are exploring the underwater world to help bring forward a more sustainable future.
