Research undertaken by Fraunhofer-IPA is directly aimed at promoting industrial performance. Its clear focus on application-oriented research and practical implementation distinguishes the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft from other large research establishments and institutions involved in pure or basic research. This focus applies equally to contract research commissioned directly by industry or government, as well as to advanced strategic research. The key entrepreneurial objective of the Fraunhofer-IPA is to transform scientific expertise into applications of practical utility.
