In order to bundle competencies, to encourage exchange and to develop holistic technological innovations and establish them on the market Fraunhofer UMSICHT works within a network. This comprises universities and other scientific institutions but also other Fraunhofer Institutes working in related technological areas or complementary scientific fields. This way we can jointly develop system solutions. Spin-offs of the institute successfully market established technologies and intensify the exchange between institute and industry.
Fraunhofer UMSICHT is supported and counseled by a board of trustees and a circle of friends and patrons whose special intention it is to strengthen the role of the institute within the region.
