    In the ViroSens project, researchers from the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in Regensburg and Sulzbach are working together with industrial partners on a novel analytical method to make the potency testing of vaccines more efficient and cost-effective. The method combines electrochemical sensor technology and biotechnology and, for the first time, enables a completely automated analysis of the infection status of test cells.

    The reliability of connectors and electrical interconnection technologies are essential for many industrial applications, e.g. in the automotive industry and in the networked production (keyword industry 4.0). Researchers at Fraunhofer EMFT have developed an intelligent connector in cooperation with industrial partners. It monitors the quality of the plug connection by means of miniaturized sensor systems and can thus detect impending failures.

    Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and Edwards, the leading developer and manufacturer of sophisticated vacuum, abatement and subfab system solutions and services for the semiconductor industry, are launching a cooperation within Munich-based high performance center "Secure Connected Systems" (www.svs.bayern.de). The goal of the cooperation is to create an advanced performance characterization setup for predictive maintenance of subfab equipment as a reference for Industry 4.0 applications.

  • To reinforce the position of Europe’s semiconductor and electronics industry within global competition, eleven institutes within the Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics have, together with two institutes within the Leibniz Association, come up with a concept for a cross-location research factory for microelectronics and nanoelectronics. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is providing support with the necessary investment. On April 6, 2017, Education Minister Professor Johanna Wanka handed over the grant approvals – 280 million euros for Fraunhofer and 70 million euros for Leibniz.
