» Big thoughts don’t just need wings, they also need a landing gear.«

The phrase the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong, once said, also applies here! Many great ideas for new products, system solutions or services fail at different stations during the innovation process. The list of reasons is long and diverse: lack of involvement of end users, too distinctive technological orientation, reserved willingness to cooperate, seemingly insurmountable technical problems, high risks or insufficient financing.

Using application-oriented research, development and demonstration laboratories as well as intensive cooperation in an efficient partner network, the Fraunhofer-inHaus-Center provides a portfolio of services and facilities for an optimized and secure innovation process. To remain at the quote – we don’t just ensure working wings with our our application laboratories and the principle of open innovation, we also provide for a secure landing.

The efficient partner network preserves for enough driving force for the successful upwind. This interaction displays the core idea of an inHaus-Center partnership.

You would like to discover the inHaus-Center first? In this case we recommend our Living Lab Day.
