The Fraunhofer Institute`s integration - new formation of ICT- Research and Development in Berlin

News from Jan. 04, 2012

Berlin-based Fraunhofer Institutes are about to merge to a new ICT Research Institute and collaborate on solutions for networked urban infrastructures in areas like Mobility, eHealth, Public Safety and Security, eGovernment and energy research. In January 2012 the first step towards the Institute’s formal merger was completed by integrating the Berlin part of ISST into Fraunhofer FOKUS.

The entire process is expected to be completed at the beginning of 2013. At first, the institutes will start working at the FOKUS location. Former ISST colleagues will move there in the middle of 2012. For the medium term we set our sights on a new location for the new institute close by the Technische Universität Berlin. We look forward to a trustful and successful cooperation in our new institute.
