Norms and Standards

© momius -

Standardization are crucial steps for technology transfer and the dissemination of Fraunhofer research results to industry.

The Fraunhofer Transport Alliance deals with standardization for the services or technologies that are being developed. This prepares the possibility of transferring the institutes' services to companies and organizations to ensure interoperability and compatibility between different systems. The activities help to create technology ecosystems to which a wide range of interested parties can contribute. This promotes efficient market penetration.

In addition, the institutes' participation in standardization bodies can help facilitate market access for products and technologies. If an institute develops its products and technologies according to certain norms and standards, it can ensure that they meet industry and regulatory requirements. This can help remove barriers to market entry and facilitate access to new markets.


  • Participation in international and national standardization committees
    • to help shape standards
    • to provide early information on emerging standards in order to generate a knowledge advantage
  • Development of technology aimed specifically at later worldwide standardization
  • Knowledge transfer from current or emerging norms and standards into the industry (best practice in the implementation of the standardized content)
  • Consulting of companies that want to create standards or want to be considered in standards.
