Our vision – what we stand for
Fraunhofer ITEM – Pioneers for sustainable health
We are living in an increasingly dynamic world. Technological cycles are getting ever shorter, demography and lifestyles are changing rapidly. These developments entail questions and challenges – challenges in particular that affect people's sustainable health. We do not want to "alleviate symptoms in the short term" – we want to contribute to a healthy future in the long term. For us, this does not just mean helping people who are ill to gain better health, but also protecting people from health risks in their everyday lives and working environments. Creatively and with a view to practical application, we develop solutions to address these needs. We are pioneers for sustainable health.
