For 5 years, University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Fraunhofer IIS and Fraunhofer IISB have been joining their expertise in the Leistungszentrum Elektroniksysteme (LZE, High-Performance Center for Electronic Systems) to push the development of complex electronic systems.

Today, an electronic system not only consists of devices and circuit components but also of complex software that integrates it into a specific environment. Besides the scientific work, the center of excellence focuses explicitly on the development of structures and cooperation models for transfer and exploitation in order to implement technologies from research more quickly into products in close cooperation with industry.

The cooperation between the Fraunhofer Institutes IIS and IISB in Erlangen and the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) has always been good and close, either through jointly operated laboratories or combined activities in research, education and training. With the foundation of the Center of Excellence Electronic Systems (LZE) in 2015, this cooperation was taken to a completely new strategic level - Mission: Making technologies from excellent research successful through systematic transfer activities.
