Fraunhofer Institute for Microengineering and Microsystems IMM

We create value.

As leading contract research organization we provide research and development services to our customers and partners from industry, other research organizations and universities for more than 30 years. Transferring requirements into workable and customer friendly solutions we secure a competitive edge and head start in innovation. Based on our profound experience in microsystem technology we accept challenges others don’t due to a lack of knowledge/experience or interest.

With our project work we contribute to the Fraunhofer Strategic Research Fields of Hydrogen Technologies, Resource Efficiency and Climate Technologies, Digital Healthcare and Bioeconomy.
