Institutes and Research Institutions

The Fraunhofer-Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing SCAI conducts research in the field of computer simulations for product and process development, and is a prominent corporate partner in the industrial and science sectors. SCAI designs and optimizes industrial applications, implements custom solutions for production and logistics, and offers calculations on high-performance computers. SCAI's Department of Bioinformatics focuses on solutions for information extraction and chemoinformatics.

FIT, the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology, helps to shape the future with novel, market-oriented products. Our researchers work in interdisciplinary teams and combine insights from computer science with questions from other fields. Thus, the institute invents and develops applications custom-tailored to support people in their jobs and to enrich their leisure time.

At the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS , we explore and develop innovative systems designed to analyze data and to make information available. On the one hand, we realize application solutions in the fields of data mining, business intelligence or high-resolution management for optimizing products, services and processes. On the other hand, we develop systems that use innovative forms of media presentation to help make large amounts of data (data warehouses) accessible (knowledge extraction, interactive exploration, knowledge management, media analysis and visualization).
