Fraunhofer Singapore model

Fraunhofer Singapore is 8th subsidiary of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft outside Germany and 3rd outside Europe respectively.

Fraunhofer Singapore looks at real world problems and uses technologies in the field of interactive digital media to transfer visual solutions and skilled minds to the market. In essence, the Centre looks at user-centered, immersive, real-time visual environments that allow users to interact with information.

As the very first Fraunhofer subsidiary in Asia, Fraunhofer Singapore delivers Visual Computing solutions to support the transformation of enterprises through digitization with impact on industry and society. In particular, it seeks to achieve breakthroughs in applying Visualisation, Virtual and Augmented Reality for Industry 4.0 and higher-skilled workforce training for the Employee 4.0. This will also include additive manufacturing and industrial cybersecurity. 

An essential cornerstone is the close collaboration with the various schools and colleges of Fraunhofer’s long-term partner, the Nanyang Technological University Singapore (NTU), providing a multi-disciplinary research environment to tackle great challenges in science, engineering and society.

The Fraunhofer Singapore Network

Fraunhofer Singapore leverages on the existing strengths of the Fraunhofer Project Centre for Interactive Digital Media (Fraunhofer IDM@NTU), one of the pioneers in applied research in IDM driven by the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research (IGD) in Darmstadt. It will also work alongside with Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramics Technologies and Systems (IKTS) in Dresden and Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology (SIT) in Darmstadt, reinforcing Singapore’s bilateral relations with Germany.

This includes in particular the following individual strengths and expertise:

Fraunhofer Singapore also works together with the best of the brightest minds from partner universities such as the Technische Universität Darmstadt, University of Rostock, Graz University of Technology and the Nanyang Technological University here in Singapore. This includes also a Joint-PhD Programme in Visual Computing.
