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.



Webinar “How can optical sensor technology make a difference in microfluidics?”

The webinar on October 11, 2023, will will present some examples of how the integration of optical measurement technology into microfluidic systems can be achieved.


With reformer technology and more at Hydrogen Technology Expo 2023

Fraunhofer IMM will present three developments at Hydrogen Technology Expo 2023 on September 27 and 28 in Bremen: its methanol reformer, ammonia cracking and methanation technology.


Fraunhofer IMM presents modular reactor concept

From September 18 to 21, 2023, we will be showcasing selected developments from our Division Chemistry at the 14th European Congress of Chemical Engineering in Berlin. The focus is on the modular reactor concept pursued as part of the Fraunhofer lighthouse project "ShaPID".


Research news: "Modular flow cells for sustainable chemistry"

IMM is collaborating with hte GmbH to develop modular electrochemical cells. These flow cells are used in screening tasks, thereby helping optimize electrochemical production processes, such as water electrolysis.


Doctoral thesis in the field of electrochemistry

We congratulate Nils Baumgarten on the successful defense! Baumgarten's thesis deals with an electrochemical microreactor for carrying out electrochemical syntheses in continuous operation and studies the influence of operating conditions on selectivity and energy efficiency.
