The future is made by Fraunhofer.
Cutting-edge research needs cutting-edge people. This is why we offer our more than 26,000 employees at our current 72 institutes and research facilities more than just a working environment equipped with first-class technology.
Excellent training opportunities, sufficient freedom in the implementation of creative ideas, tolerance in practice and practical work not only ensure the best employees, but have also made us one of the most popular employers in Germany.
Together, we achieve an annual research volume of more than 2.6 billion euros. More than 2.2 billion euros of this is spent on contract research. More than 70 percent is generated with contracts from industry and with publicly financed research projects, and almost 30 percent is provided by the federal and state governments as basic funding.
