FRAUNHOFER AUSTRIA - INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR THE TODAY OF TOMORROW
Fraunhofer has been active through project-based work in Austria since 2004. They formed the foundation for a close cooperation with the technical universities in Vienna, Graz, Innsbruck and Klagenfurt.
In November 2008, Fraunhofer Austria Research GmbH was founded as an independent subsidiary of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and purposefully united the two existing project offices at the Vienna University of Technology and the Graz University of Technology under one common entity. This resulted in the successful business areas »Production and Logistics Management« (Vienna) and »Visual Computing« (Graz).
In 2016, the innovation center "Digital Transformation of Industry" in Tyrol was founded, which deals in particular with the challenges and applications of digital transformation for SMEs, and in 2019 Fraunhofer Austria founded another innovation center "Digitization and Artificial Intelligence - KI4LIFE « in Carinthia.
