COVID-19 pandemic: Important information on cooperation

Dear Business Partners, Friends and Colleagues,

Due to recent developments, we would like to inform you about the current situation at our insti-tute with regard to mutual cooperation.

  1. Protection: Since the health of all is paramount to us, we are strictly following the official state and federal guidelines and regulations, as well as the instructions issued by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. The aim is to act responsibly and to protect our employees and society. This has top priority.
  2. Working capacity: Despite all the restrictions, we are still operational and able to carry on with our work. Our employees are continuing to work on projects and are using the necessary digital tools to communicate and collaborate with one another efficiently.
  3. Availability: Our employees can be reached by e-mail and telephone. Alternative forms of communication are also used; these vary significantly depending on the situation concerned. If you are unable to reach your personal contact partner, please do not hesi-tate to get in touch with us. All matters will be handled confidentially. We will then for-ward your request internally to obtain the fastest possible response.
  4. Communication: To uphold maximum transparency and cooperation, we will update our website daily with the latest information should there be any changes regarding our working capacity and availability.

Stay healthy! Wishing you, your families and employees all the best.


Best regards

Thomas Bauernhansl
