Alliances, Networks and Groups

The Fraunhofer Lead Market-Oriented Alliances and Fraunhofer Theme-Oriented Networks 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.

Institutes working in related subject areas cooperate in Fraunhofer Competence-Oriented Groups and foster a joint presence on the R&D market. They help to define the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft’s business policy and act to implement the organizational and funding principles of the Fraunhofer model.
