Projects 2021: Percentage distribution according to competence fields

The Fraunhofer EMFT team was able to make its contribution to tackling the current challenges facing our society in 2021 with a total of 79 projects. More than one third of these – 39% to be precise – can be attributed to the area of expertise of Micro- and Nanotechnologies. This in turn forms the basis for the competences Sensor Solutions, Micropumps, and Safe and Secure Electronics. It is exactly this interdisciplinary interaction between these areas that helps us produce forward-looking solutions for people and the environment.

In order to achieve this, you need a strong team: as compared to the previous year, the permanent staff at the institution increased by four and consisted of 139 people in total at the end of 2021. Of these, 103 people are employed in the scientific area and 34 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 supported by two 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.

History of Fraunhofer EMFT

© Fraunhofer EMFT
Thermal processing during the eighties
  • Fraunhofer EMFT originates from the Fraunhofer Institute for Solid State Technology IFT, which was founded in 1974. Here, technologies were developed for the manufacture of semiconductors. Other areas of activity included sensor technology, communication technology and microstructure technology. 
  • 1999 the Fraunhofer IFT was dissolved and split into three independent sections. The section located in Hansastrasse, Munich - today`s Fraunhofer EMFT - became part of the Berlin-based Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration IZM. 
  • Since July 1, 2010, Fraunhofer EMFT has been operating as an independent institution of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft afresh.
