High Performance Center Simulation and Software Based Innovation

High Performance Center Simulation and Software Based Innovation

Sustainable location development is a central goal of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft; a goal that can only be achieved when all dimensions are respected - research and education, promotion of young researchers, overarching infrastructure as well as innovation and transfer in SMEs and large enterprises. The Fraunhofer Gesellschaft is putting this into practice with the concept of High Performance Centers, relying on consisting partnerships with relevant academic actors and on the regional economic networks.

The concept can be seen as an instrument of innovation- and application oriented excellence assurance in key topics for selected regions. Kaiserslautern, the „City of Science“, offers a nationwide unique infrastructure in the area of IT research and especially in hardware, software and network based digital technologies.
