Alumni at Fraunhofer IIS

– in the Fraunhofer Alumni Association (Fraunhofer Alumni-Verein e.V.)

“For people who have worked at the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft for a long time, typically performing their duties with great passion and initiative, this phase of their career has come to represent an important part of their professional and private life. They have formed networks that do not fade into insignificance after they leave. The Fraunhofer Alumni Association makes it considerably easier to develop and maintain these interpersonal relationships. It also gives you the great feeling of still belonging to a community you have come to love.”

Professor Heinz Gerhäuser
Former Director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Erlangen.
