Fraunhofer Groups and Alliances

The institutes in the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft also work together: They collaborate in alliances and, depending on particular needs, can bundle their expertise in flexible structures. This so safeguards their position as leaders in the development of system solutions and in the implementation of holistic innovations.

Fraunhofer IFAM is one of the largest institutes in the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and as such has close links with many of the other Fraunhofer Institutes.

Fraunhofer Group for Materials and Components – MATERIALS

Institutes working in related subject areas cooperate in Fraunhofer Groups. Because of its material scientific orientation Fraunhofer IFAM takes part in the Fraunhofer Group for Materials and Components – MATERIALS.

Fraunhofer Alliances

The Fraunhofer Alliances facilitate customer access to the services and research results of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Common points of contact for groups of institutes active in related fields provide expert advice on complex issues and coordinate the development of appropriate solutions.

Fraunhofer IFAM is currently member in 10 alliances as well as in the Fraunhofer Academy.
