Guiding Principles

Systemic approach of central administration

The central administration itself promotes a systemic approach. This can be taken up by the cooperation of different institutes and made even better usable


Cooperation as the guiding idea of future research

Innovations will emerge even more in the future through cooperation. Collaborative R&D programs profitably combine the sectoral research of the Fraunhofer Institutes and promote networking within the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft.


Driving innovation into the market

The systemic approach of Collaborative R&D Programs creates holistic solutions for future issues and a unique selling proposition to the market.
