Fraunhofer Transport Alliance

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

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.
