Research for the market

New technological knowledge is created at Fraunhofer UMSICHT every day. Our goal is to integrate this expertise into products, services, and processes in a timely manner and make it directly available to companies and the market.

On the following pages, we present excerpts of our economically relevant technologies and services, which we have developed to such an extent that they can be adapted to the individual needs of individual industries and companies.
