Fraunhofer Network



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. We improve methods and techniques. We open up new vistas. In short, we forge the future.


Fraunhofer Transport Alliance

The Fraunhofer Transport Alliance develops adequate technical and conceptual solutions for the public and industry partners and puts these solutions into practice by means of transport-related research. It creates a new choice in R&D in transport through the bundling of the existing potential and a broad system competency. Due to their participation in international research programs member institutes have worldwide contacts with companies and research organizations involved in the fields of transportation engineering and management.
