Fraunhofer Italia

Creating a link between science and business, and using applied research to develop successful innovations: these are the objectives of Fraunhofer Italia, a subsidiary of the German Fraunhofer Society.

Innovation is one of the most important factors driving business success. Only companies which keep abreast of their customers’ needs, operate at the cutting edge of technology and respond quickly to market developments can survive in a globally competitive environment. This is why Fraunhofer Italia focuses intensively on trends and megatrends as well as the challenges they create for companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises. A crucial aspect of this is the investigation of the potential benefits and the future impact of digitalisation on companies, particularly in the area of Industry 4.0.

The researchers at Fraunhofer Italia help companies to gain access to and apply Industry 4.0 principles, concentrating their efforts on both the manufacturing and construction industries. Moreover, besides assisting companies with technology and market research, Fraunhofer Italia also supports them to develop innovative business models.
