The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung FhG (Fraunhofer Society) is one of the leading European institutions for contract research. Its Microelectronics Alliance VµE brings together the activities of thirteen institutes as full members and three as associated members working in the fields of micro- and nanoelectronics and microsystems. Strongly industry driven, more than 2,700 employees are working on the development and implementation of innovative concepts of miniaturized, highly integrated micro systems. Thus Fraunhofer VµE bridges the gap between semiconductor technologies and its applications.
The purpose of the Fraunhofer VµE is to scout for new trends in microelectronics technologies and applications and to integrate them in the strategic planning of the member institutes. It also engages in joint marketing and public relations work.
The business office of the Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics coordinates all activities, working closely with the member institutes to forge durable contacts between science, industry and politics.
