The most common way of cooperating with industrial partners is contract research. However, if the tasks and challenges are too complex, we offer pre-competitive research. In those cases, teaming up with companies and research institutes, while using public funding support, is more effective than operating alone.
In 2017, Fraunhofer ENAS has cooperated and collaborated with more than 150 partners from companies worldwide. Fraunhofer ENAS carries out direct orders as well as joint R&D projects and pre-competitive research.
