Statement on handling the Corona virus pandemic at Fraunhofer EMFT

March 19, 2020

Dear customers and partners,

The rapid spread of the corona virus is currently changing our everyday life massively and is a huge challenge for all of us. In her speech, Chancellor Angela Merkel made an urgent appeal to the sense of responsibility of each individual to follow the measures laid down and the recommendations of the experts.

The Fraunhofer EMFT takes this message very seriously. The protection of our employees and their fellow human beings is our top priority. For the time being, many of our employees work in their home offices and can be reached there by phone or e-mail. No one can predict exactly how the situation will develop. For this reason, Fraunhofer EMFT has also set up its own crisis management team, which exchanges information on a daily basis for an up-to-date assessment of the situation and informs our staff, customers and partner companies accordingly. At the same time, we do our best to maintain operations as best we can. Project work in the clean room and in the laboratories continues - and the prescribed precautionary measures are strictly observed. So even in times of Corona, let us stay in touch and make use of the many possibilities offered by telephone and the web!

Best regards and stay healthy,


Professor Christoph Kutter

Director Fraunhofer EMFT
