The Fraunhofer EMFT team was able to make its contribution to tackling the current challenges facing society in 2022 with a total of 53 projects. Almost half of these – 47% to be precise – can be attributed to the area of expertise Micro- and Nanotechnologies. This in turn forms the basis for the competences Sensor Solutions, Micropumps, and Safe and Secure Electronics. It is precisely the interdisciplinary interaction between these areas that helps us produce forward-looking solutions for people and the environment.
The total budget of Fraunhofer EMFT in 2022 was around 22.8 million euros. Industrial orders generated a total volume of around 4.0 million euros, or 22.10% of the operating budget.
In order to achieve this, you need a strong team: compared to the previous year, the number of permanent staff at the institute increased by four in 2022, with a total of workforce of 155 as of the end of the year. Of these, 94 people are employed in the scientific area and 58 in support areas. The latter are made up of marketing, IT, administration, technology, quality management, organization and services. In addition, the Fraunhofer EMFT team has been supplemented with three trainees.
Another 66 student assistants from a wide range of universities and other higher education institutions were employed at Fraunhofer EMFT over the course of the year, either involved in Fraunhofer EMFT research activities and/or working on their final thesis.
At Fraunhofer EMFT, we stand for outstanding expertise from all over the world: our team comes from a total of 23 different countries. Together we drive forward research and development of sensor systems and actuators to the benefit of human beings and the environment. Our multicultural background is a key advantage, enabling us to look at scientific issues from a diverse range of perspectives. We make the most of this opportunity to inspire each other in terms of our mindset and our problem-solving strategies.
