In the third newsletter for this year we report, amongst other items, on the current status of the Wasserstoff-Campus Salzgitter (hydrogen campus) and the retirement of our long-standing Institute Director, Prof. Dr. Günter Bräuer. Furthermore, you can obtain information concerning the role of the Fraunhofer IST in the Project Center Wolfsburg as regards equipping the automobile of the future with surfaces, thereby taking into account current trends such as the electrification of mobility and autonomous driving. In the articles “Flexible and individual: Fraunhofer team develops visionary vehicle concept” and “Smart screw connection”, you can read how the expertise of various Fraunhofer institutes has been successfully combined.
We send you our warmest greetings and wish you a pleasant and enjoyable Advent period.
