High Performance Center Simulation and Software Based Innovation

High Performance Center Simulation and Software Based Innovation

With performance centers, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft pursues the goal of sustainable location development. The Fraunhofer concept relies on existing cooperations with relevant players from the scientific community and regional networking with the business community. All dimensions are included: Research and teaching, promotion of young scientists, overarching infrastructures, innovation and transfer in SMEs and large companies.

Cooperation between companies, universities, and research institutions at the Kaiserslautern location has been institutionalized in the Simulation and Software-based Innovation Performance Center since 2016 and has significantly expanded existing cooperations and transfer measures. The City of Science Kaiserslautern offers a nationwide unique infrastructure in the field of applied IT research and especially hardware-, software- and network-based digital technologies, which is characterized by a variety of coordinated activities and by the joint appearance of regional companies and institutions under the umbrella of SIAK e.V. (Science and Innovation Alliance Kaiserslautern). The concept sees itself as an instrument for innovation and exploitation-oriented excellence assurance in key topics for selected regions.
