We can train your employees to master current and future challenges in industrial production. Depending on the target group, different event formats are available, details of which can be found here.

Application and technology seminars

Application and technology seminars provide you with an overview of the current status and trends in a specific subject area. For this purpose, we prepare the contents didactically in such a way that both qualified personnel and decision-makers obtain the knowledge that they require for their daily work. For qualified personnel, targeted user knowledge is conveyed, whilst decision-makers receive the information that they require in order to identify interrelations and areas in which action is necessary. It is thereby important to us that the content can also be experienced in its application, for example by means of a hands-on element or tours through our laboratories. This provides participants with the possibility of becoming acquainted at first hand with the latest technologies.

Individual solution approaches for your organization can then be discussed in personal follow-up meetings with our employees.

Forums and congresses

Forums and congresses address a defined subject area, often for topical reasons. In presentations and tours, you, as a participant, will gain insights into the latest results from industrial and research projects. The emphasis is thereby placed on the professional exchange between experts from science and industry. We offer these formats both as presence events and live online.


Webinars are short live online formats in which a current topic is presented. At the end of the presentation, there is the opportunity of a short discussion. In contrast to forums and congresses, the focus here is on familiarization. Nevertheless, individual discussions with our researchers can be arranged afterwards.

Live online seminars or trainings

In live online seminars, you, as a participant, receive comprehensive training on a specific subject area. We prepare these didactically in such a way that a good combination of methods is achieved and the stated learning objectives – for example, behavior adaptation – are accomplished.


Individual trainings

Theoretical & practical training

You have a training need or a problem that you would like to address with the assistance of training and further education for your employees?

Then please do not hesitate to contact us. Our education managers will offer you exactly what you need – from consultation, through design and on to the creation of training or education programs.

You would like to arrange an application and technology seminar, personalized and tailor-made for your organization? We offer this as well. With several participants, you may even save on expenditure. In addition, you have the possibility of integrating your individual interests and questions into the seminar. These company-specific seminars offer a great deal of scope for practical ideas and exercises and can be held either at the Fraunhofer IST or at your premises.


Our current training programs


Net Zero Scenario - how to achieve it with hydrogen

In our program you will learn how to obtain, transport and bring green hydrogen into application. In the process we share with you the latest research knowledge of the Fraunhofer IST and show you how hydrogen is already being used by our partner companies. You will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with researchers and entrepreneurs, but also get an introduction to the building elements of tomorrow's hydrogen economy. You don't need any prior knowledge. We will pick you up where you are now. We look forward to meeting you!



The Fraunhofer IST regularly presents current research results and developments at trade fairs, workshops, meetings and conferences. We look forward to your participation. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
