We shape the networked world
Fraunhofer FOKUS is one of the leading international research institutes in the field of information and communication technology. The FOKUS research team has set itself the goal of shaping the networked world and making it secure, reliable and sustainable.
The researchers have technological and industry know-how in digital networking, digital living, digital government, and security/ certification. Research in these fields of application is driven by expertise in artificial intelligence, quantum computing and sustainability.
We are convinced that application-oriented research into digitalization for society's benefit is most successful when it is conducted on an interdisciplinary basis. Therefore, at Fraunhofer FOKUS, scientists from the fields of computer science, electrical engineering, engineering, mathematics, psychology and social sciences work together. Fraunhofer FOKUS is also part of the interdisciplinary Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society, a joint project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
