COVID-19 pandemic:
Important information on cooperation

Dear business partners, dear friends and companions,


the current situation and the unpredictable developments throughout Germany present us all with special challenges. At this point we would like to inform you about the status of our institute, also with regard to cooperation.



The wellfare of its employees and the protection of all business partners is extremely important to the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and its institutes and facilities. At the Fraunhofer ISC we consistently implement the official guidelines and regulations at state and federal level and the individual instructions issued by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Our aim is to act responsibly and to protect our employees and society as a whole. This has top priority.


Working capacity

Despite all the restrictions, we are able to work and maintain operations. Wherever possible, employees use digital tools so that project work and communication can continue.



Our employees can be reached even when they are in their home office - by e-mail, by phone, often via alternative and individual communication solutions. If you cannot reach your contacts as usual, you are welcome to contact the information team at, who will get your request to the addressees as quickly as possible.


Up-to-date information

Should there be any changes in accessibility or work capacity due to dynamic developments, we will inform you via our website on a daily basis and comprehensively in the interest of the best possible cooperation.


Stay healthy, all the best for you and your families!
