Objectives and Priority Topics
The primary objectives of the Fraunhofer IFF's regional office in Bangkok are to develop existing partnerships and to establish new strategic, interdisciplinary collaborative relationships (with industry and academic, research and government organization) in the ASEAN region. The focus is on collaborative research and development and industrial implementation projects.
In the long-range, the regional office will serve the Fraunhofer IFF (and other select institutes in the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft) as a node for regional technology and know-how transfer in the ASEAN region. A network of sixty Fraunhofer Institutes with some 18,000 employees can be drawn on for complex interdisciplinary project activities.
The office additionally also provides innovative German companies support when entering the market in the ASEAN region.
