Fraunhofer IZFP's activities are embedded in a wide range of publicly funded research projects. This comprises the planning, coordination and implementation of both, national and international research projects.
The institute zeroes in on application-oriented, scientific and technical state-of-the-art system and sensor system development. Such systems are designed and developed for a wide range of applications. Examples include
- the development of sensor systems to optimize the quality of processes and products,
- digitization schemes and strategies for hightech "industry 4.0" projects,
- the monitoring of failure critical and/or highly stressed components and plants,
- but also the exploitation of new application fields for developments concerning the entire value chain of the product life cycle.
