Renowned research institutes & innovative start-ups

Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing – SCAI

The Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing SCAI is a partner of industry for computer simulation and optimization as well as for information extraction from large data sets.

The institute models and optimizes industrial applications, develops software and services for product design, process development and production, and provides computations on high-performance computers. The goal here is shorter development times, more cost-effective experiments and optimized process flows. In the Bioinformatics department, Fraunhofer SCAI offers its customers comprehensive services in the field of information extraction (text mining) as well as in the field of applied chemical informatics.

Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems – IAIS

Fraunhofer IAIS researches and develops innovative systems to analyze data and make information accessible.

On the one hand, the institute realizes application solutions from the fields of data mining, business intelligence or high resolution management for the optimization of products, services and processes. On the other hand, IAIS develops systems that help to open up large amounts of data through innovative media presentation (knowledge extraction, interactive exploration, knowledge management, media analysis and visualization).

Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation – IFF

With customized solutions, the Fraunhofer Institute IFF supports companies in Germany and abroad on their way to intelligent production. It is a technology partner for the planning, development, equipping and operation of work, production and logistics systems as well as their supplying infrastructures: The institute designs work systems in which man and machine work together. It combines these work systems into efficient production and logistics systems and networks them with each other and their environment via intelligent infrastructures.

The key to this is end-to-end digital engineering along the lifecycle of products and production systems. This is achieved with interoperable methods and tools as well as expertise in robotics, measurement and testing, technology-assisted assisting and learning, and the design of processes in production and logistics.

Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics – ITWM

The core competences of the ITWM are the classical disciplines of applied mathematics, such as numerics, differential equations, stochastics, and optimization. In addition, there are mathematically oriented theoretical fields that have emerged as border areas between mathematics and technology. With these core competences, the ITWM works on the business areas “Virtual Material and Product Design”, “Process Simulation”, and “Diagnostic Systems”.

The products range from know-how cast in software to consulting and support services to system solutions. The ITWM does not only use simulation software, but it develops it itself, often in cooperation with leading software companies.

Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics – IML

The Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML is considered the address for all questions concerning holistic logistics and works in all fields of internal and external logistics.

Teams assembled according to project and customer needs create cross-industry and customer-specific solutions in the areas of material flow technology, warehouse management, business process modeling, simulation-based enterprise and system planning, and in the areas of transportation systems, resource logistics, and e-business, among others. The largest logistics research project in Europe at present is the EffizienzCluster LogistikRuhr with 120 partner companies and 11 research institutions.

Simulation Data Analysis and Compression Technologies – SIDACT

SIDACT stands for Simulation Data Analysis and Compression Technologies and describes the business areas of the new technology company, which was founded as a spin-off from the Fraunhofer Institute SCAI.

SIDACT takes over the exclusive marketing rights of the software programs FEMZIP and DIFFCRASH developed at Fraunhofer SCAI.
