What are we doing?
In a Fraunhofer Alliance, specialists from different Fraunhofer institutes are organized into teams that combine their single competences into a common, integrative area of business.
Members of the Adaptronics Alliance are the Fraunhofer Institutes:
Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS
Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS
Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST
Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU
Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF
In the Adaptronics Alliance the competences of these 6 Fraunhofer institutes, which lie in the areas of development, application and optimization of intelligent material systems and components, systems and applications are combined. Through this cooperation the institutes want to make a substantial contribution towards efficiently solving complex tasks in the field of adaptronics and towards offering the user a common, central contact person for his system development. As a result of the participation of the institutes in other groups of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft an active exchange of information is guaranteed.
By bringing together single competences the Adaptronics Alliance wants to offer R&D services in the industrial and scientific field within the relevant fields of adaptronics, both individually in the technical disciplines as well as networked along the development and value enhancement chain.
