Annual Report 2022/2023: Digitalization for a sustainable future

Over 25 years of shaping the digital future – with software, systems and innovation engineering

The past year was clearly characterized by energy shortages and the resulting high energy prices. This made it clear to us as Fraunhofer IESE that we need to focus our scientific expertise even more strongly on the topic of sustainability. After all, our mission is to use our research for the good of society and for the benefit of the German economy. We will therefore place an even greater focus on this topic and work on digital solutions for conserving resources and protecting the environment for all of us and especially for our business partners.

Read our cover story to find out how our software and systems engineering concepts and solutions provide many levers for achieving sustainability in ecological, economic, and social terms. But you can also expect many other trend topics in our Annual Report 2022/2023, such as “Digital Healthcare”, “Digital Twins”, “Digital Farming”, “Autonomous Systems”, and “Smart City”.

We invite you to download our digital Annual Report (pdf) and to listen to our “MORGEN DENKER” podcast (the latter only in German). Have fun!
