IISB – National & International Partner
Originating from its headquarter in the south of Erlangen, right within the southern campus of Friedrich-Alexander-Universität of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU), the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Systems and Device Technology IISB has a rich network of partnerships and cooperation at its disposal.
Sustainable research requires interdisciplinary input and extensive networking. A principle vividly lived by since the institute’s foundation. Among others, this is illustrated by the IISB’s branches, the first being Nuremberg-West, which is situated on the areal of ‘Energie Campus Nürnberg’ (EnCN). The second to mention is the branch lab ‘Technologiezentrum Halbleitermaterialien THM‘ in Freiberg / Saxony, which is operated in close collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE and is managed by Freiberg’s technical University ‘TU Bergakademie’. Thus situating the THM within reach of Germany’s hotspot for semiconductor technologies. Over and above that, various national and international groups, associations and partnerships in research and industry actively shape the work and progress of the Fraunhofer IISB.
Examples include ‘The European Center for Power Electronics’ (ECPE), ‘The Bavarian Clusters for Power Electronics and Mechtronics and Automation’ as well as ‘The German Crystal Association DGKK e.V.’. In conjunction with Fraunhofer IIS and Fraunhofer ISC, Fraunhofer IISB is main coordinator of the joint Bavarian energy research project SEEDs and original member of the ‘Leistungszentrum Elektroniksysteme’ (LZE).
