The three service packages of our Digital Labs

Fraunhofer IESE: neutral partner for platform economy and
digital ecosystems

With our three service packages we accompany you on the path towards successful technological innovation, support you in the efficient engineering of your software-based systems and make sure that the quality of your software is good.

As a Fraunhofer Institute, we have been an independent partner in all issues related to software and systems engineering for more than 20 years. In our applied research, the focus is on smart ecosystems, for the future belongs to dynamic and digital ecosystems with an extremely high demand on the quality of both the system architecture and the system implementation. Through balanced interaction between Digital Services and Autonomous & Cyber-Physical Systems, we set the right course in digital ecosystems.
