The recently funded ENIAC project THINGS2DO (Abbreviation for: „Thin but great Silicon to Design Objects“) aims to establish a sustainable ecosystem for the realization of such semiconductor components in Europe. The project will allow small and medium-sized companies as well as industry and research to combine, integrate and produce IP-components and system solutions based on advanced 28nm FDSOI Technology.

Obituary - Gerhard Klink



It is not the years in your life
but the life in your years
that count in the long run.

(Adlai Stevenson)

On October 24, our longstanding staff member and colleague Mr. Gerhard Klink passed away after a brief but serious illness.

His early death comes as a shock to all of us and we are deeply saddened.

Mr. Klink joined the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in July 1987, taking charge of the Polytronic Technologies Group in 2007. In addition to his research work, he attached particular importance to scientific practice as well as maintaining good contacts with customers and cooperation partners. With his enormous sense of personal commitment and responsibility he was able to advance Fraunhofer EMFT’s topics, issues and projects, and his influence brought about many positive changes.

His open, cordial disposition, his professional expertise and his quiet, discerning manner made him highly respected and esteemed among colleagues. With the passing of Gerhard Klink we have lost not just a very dedicated business unit and group leader but also a much-valued colleague, individual and friend.

Our sympathies particularly go out to his wife, children and other family members at this time.

In deep sadness

Prof. Christoph Kutter on behalf of the Fraunhofer EMFT staff
