The Fraunhofer Institute develops systems, components, materials and processes in the areas of the thermal use of solar energy, solar building, solar cells, electrical power supplies, chemical energy conversion, energy storage and the rational use of energy.
Axel Brendle, Head of IT, set up a perfect seminar environment in ISE,s impressive building. Thank you!
900 persons are employed at ISE. They have access to the latest technologies for their research and ground-breaking technology development. Networked and grid-enabled Mathematica 7 is widely used in modeling and simulation.
The spirited discussion showed that computing-developing and deploying applications are increasingly important in industrial research. As an example, I want to mention ITWM's world-wide released Analog Insydes .
Again, I approached Freiburg by train from Frankfurt browsing along the Schwarzwald with the vineyards of famous vintners on the foothills (like Berhard Huber, Malterdingen, and his fantastic but rare Spätburgunder "R"). Innovative as Fraunhofer, in his field. And I like to walk through Freiburg, even if I only have an hour.
I am looking forward to the seminar in St. Augustin/Schloss Birlinghoven.
