Australien researchers visiting the inHaus
In total there were nine stops planned all around Germany for the participants of the 5 day InnoTour, organized by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. At the end of their trip, the delegation arrived in Duisburg to visit the inHaus-Center. Besides the grand tour through the house by the inHaus director Wolfgang Gröting, assisted by Sven Meister from Fraunhofer ISST and a guided tour through the Health&Care Lab, there was an active exchange about current subjects concerning health research. All participants did help expand the network between the German and Australian health sector, which was one of the aims of the tour in addition to an insight view of the huge portfolio of the German applied research and corporate landscape.
During their trip the participants also stopped at the headquarters of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in Munich, the Medical Valley in Erlangen and the Max-Planck Institute in Göttingen.
