We connect science and industry
We support companies in launching internationally successful innovations for health, the environment and industry and provide solutions from the feasibility study to series production. We strengthen enterprises with application-oriented research and development in microelectronics, systems engineering and mechatronics and transfer the results of basic research into applications and products.
To achieve this, we cooperate closely with universities such as Ilmenau TU and with industrial partners, and are involved in networks and competence clusters. We supervise around 30 students each year. We enable them to start their careers in industry and applied research with sound methodological knowledge and involvement in practice, and also strengthen the companies in the region in this way.
We connect the digital to the analog world
We create innovative industrial solutions for intelligent sensor and measurement systems as well as high-precision drive systems. With application-oriented developments, we open up high-performance solutions for digitalisation and miniaturisation, which are the key to new applications.
For example, we are working on sensor systems for in-vitro diagnostics that enable individual, decentralised health monitoring for everyone with rapid electronic tests, and on adaptive edge AI systems to enable AI on low-consumption embedded systems in industry and to network them in real time.
We were founded in 1995 as a Land-owned company of the German Land of Thüringen and we are an affiliated institute of Ilmenau TU. We work with a team of around 90 people at our headquarters in Ilmenau and at the institute’s branch office in Erfurt.
Out of a shared concern for the state of democracy in our country, organisations and individuals from all over Thuringia are getting involved with »Weltoffenes Thüringen«:
