The Training Center is an integral part of Fraunhofer IFAM , the world's largest independent R&D establishment working in the area of adhesive bonding technology and surfaces. As such the "generator of knowledge" is simultaneously the "transferor of knowledge", so facilitating technology transfer to industry. The latter is one the key objectives of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
All the tutors at the Training Center for Adhesive Bonding Technology are highly qualified scientists and engineers who are fully involved in the R&D projects of other departments at the institute. These tutors give training on specific topics at the Training Center. This approach assures that the training courses are of optimum relevance for industry and are kept up-to-date with the latest R&D findings.
