Fields of research at Fraunhofer SCS


Successful digital transformation requires extensive methodological expertise that specifically caters to the demands of the application environment. This is the only way for companies to develop a future-oriented vision.

Accordingly, in our fields of research we combine our methodological expertise in economics, technology and mathematics with concrete application know-how, and continually develop both in research projects.


ADA Lovelace Center for Analytics, Data and Applications

With its unparalleled combination of AI research and AI applications in industry, the ADA Center is a forum in which partners can forge mutual connections, benefit from each other’s know-how, and work on joint projects.


Technologies and Solutions for Digitalized Value Creation

In practice, it is easier for companies to embark on digital transformation when it delivers clear added value. Accordingly, our solutions are optimized to bring clear cost and usage efficiency – and they integrate into your existing intralogistics and industrial processes at the interface between humans and technology. We are your partner in the digital transformation.


Scientific expertise in the reference process

The methodological expertise developed in our fields of research is informed by our specially developed Reference Process for Digital Transformation. Read about what this initiative means to us, and how we can use our expertise to comprehensively support companies.
