Fraunhofer Transport Alliance

The Fraunhofer Transport Alliance was formed in March 2003, and currently represents the combined traffic-engineering expertise of sixteen Fraunhofer Institutes.

The Fraunhofer Transport Alliance develops adequate technical and conceptual solutions for the public and industry partners and puts these solutions into practice by means of transport-related research.

It creates a new choice in R&D in transport through the bundling of the existing potential and a broad system competency.

Due to their participation in international research programs member institutes have worldwide contacts with companies and research organizations involved in the fields of transportation engineering and management.

The Alliance’s office will help you to find the right partners.


Conference Fraunhofer Mobility Infusion at Hypermotion

»Intelligently connected – where are we heading to?« and »Autonomous driving and connected mobility« are the topics of the »Fraunhofer Mobility Infusion« module at Hypermotion on 21st November 2017.

»Fraunhofer Mobility Infusion« asks controversial questions about the future of connected mobility. We will discuss the topics of intermodality, multimodality and autonomous driving with partners from industry, transport associations and applied research. You can expect to be inspired and stimulated about mobility in the future with top-level speakers. Experts and managers from Fraunhofer, Siemens, Uber, VW, PRO BAHN e.V. (a non-profit organization of passengers of public transport in Germany) and VDV (the Association of German Transport Companies) will come together on our podium.

Discussions will focus on: Is intermodality viable in the future? What role will autonomous driving play in connected mobility? One seat in our discussion on the podium is reserved for an interested person from the audience.

Eight Fraunhofer institutes join their forces

On 8th February, representatives from eight Fraunhofer institutes met for the kick-off meeting of Fraunhofer AVIATION Group at the House of Logistics and Mobility in Frankfurt. The meeting was aimed to present AVIATION relevant activities of participating institutes and to plan the next steps for external communication at conferences, trade fairs and digital media. Above that, activities for the joint initiation of research and industrial projects were decided. The discussion also showed that the need for cross-institute solutions is very high. Because of the interdisciplinary experience of eight Fraunhofer institutes combined with specialized knowledge in the area of ​​AVIATION, customers from industry and politics can now select a well networked team of experts in the field of industrial oriented research. The Fraunhofer AVIATION Group is a reliable and target oriented partner for industrial and public partners designing and implementing innovative and economically viable system solutions in the field of AVIATION by using well-established methodologies. The Fraunhofer AVIATION Group is an initiative of the Fraunhofer-Alliance for Transport and is managed by Dr. Ralf-Maximilian Jungkunz, Head of Department for Aviation Logistics at Fraunhofer IML. Dr. Jungkunz is available for appointments with interested representatives from industry and politics.
