Sensors and actuators for people and the environment

Fraunhofer EMFT conducts cutting-edge applied research on sensors and actuators for people and the environment. The over hundred employees in the three locations in Munich, Oberpfaffenhofen and Regensburg possess impressive long-term experience and wide-ranging know-how in the fields of microelectronics and microsystem technology. The technology offering of the research institution ranges from semiconductor processes and MEMS technologies over 3D integration to foil electronics. These production-oriented microtechnologies are the basis for the other competence areas at Fraunhofer EMFT: innovative sensor solutions, safe and secure electronics, and micro dosing. The interdisciplinary interaction of these competencies enables the development of truly novel solutions, putting Fraunhofer EMFT in an ideal position for tackling the current challenges in the areas of IoT and Smart Systems. Since 2017, the Fraunhofer EMFT has been part of the nationally coordinated and BMBF-funded Research Factory Microelectronics Germany (FMD).
