#WHAT'S NEXT at Fraunhofer IAF

01/10/19 - 2019 will be a year full of exciting moments and events

The new year has begun and we welcome back all partners, customers and friends of Fraunhofer IAF.

This year too, our researchers will face the challenges of the future with their developments. Various events are scheduled and Fraunhofer IAF celebrates the 70th birthday of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.

70 years of Fraunhofer

As researchers, entrepreneurs and visionaries, we see ourselves not only as the clock-setters of science, but also of society. Our success is visible in our innovative strength, in our partners and employees - and not least in our 70-year history. In keeping with this is our slogan »70 years of Fraunhofer, 70 years of future, #whatsnext«. Over the year 2019 we will look back on what we have achieved. There will be events and media contributions to look forward to. We will also look towards the future. We want to inspire our employees, partners and all other interested parties to take the next steps together with us, to drive forward tangible changes and to ask again and again: What's next?
