  • As a pioneer in applied research, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft brings together the expertise of 23 separate Fraunhofer facilities to develop new development and production technologies for innovative cell and gene therapeutics, as well as vaccines, in the “Production for Intelligent Medicine” innovation cluster. As a first step of the project, a concept for a modular pilot plant for the automatic production of these therapeutics is to be developed combining both Industry 4.0 and Health 4.0.

  • Medical science today is better developed than ever and pharmaceutical companies are continuously working on innovations. The composition of medicines, their purity and of course their constant quality are of utmost importance. At this point NMR spectroscopy, one of the most important analytical methods of organic chemistry and a standard method for the structure elucidation of chemical compounds, may help.

  • Added power for airplane galleys

    Press release / June 01, 2015

    The galleys inside airliners voraciously consume power - a vital yet limited resource in a plane. Additional power units may soon come to the rescue: housed inside trolley carts in the galleys, these units deliver both supplemental power and thus uncouple the power to the cabin and the kitchen from that which is supplied to the rest of the aircraft. This novel technology is a debut feature on Trade Days at the International Paris Air Show, June 15 to 21 (Hall 1, Booth G316).
