Fine-tuned for you: Our institute strategy 2021-2026

We are Europe´s leading radar research institute and are setting technological trends with which we have made a sustainable contribution to greater security, safety and efficiency in society and business in recent years and will continue to do so in the future.  


Radar in Action: The Success Story Continues

In 2021, the restrictions of the Corona pandemic continued to have an impact on interaction and networking with customers and partners. Trade shows, conferences, our annual Wachtberg-Forum – Corona meant that many opportunities for personal contact continued to be put on hold. Shortly after the pandemic began, Fraunhofer FHR, with the active support of many researchers, developed the online lecture series »Radar in Action«: an innovative, digital format to vividly present our research work to our target groups. The first broadcast started on June 23, 2020. The series was a complete success: over 900 people attended on 20 dates in 2020. So it was clear: We will continue! And so, in 2021 also, the motto was always on Tuesdays at 2 p.m.: From Wachtberg to the world!

We offer optimal conditions for writing a dissertation at the institute. In 2021, Dr.-Ing. Sven Thomas and Dr. Iole Pisciottano completed their doctorates with us.


Future topics: Good starting position from the Corona crisis

The Corona pandemic is leaving its mark on industry and thus also on the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. In order to mitigate the effects of Lockdown and Co., the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft pursued a strategy of competence and capacity preservation coordinated with the BMBF, within the framework of which programs were set up to promote future topics.
