    Always being connected is something everyone takes for granted nowadays. Instantly, no matter where we are, we share ideas with other people out there. With permanent access to our e-mails, documents, calendar and other data. Record collections, photo albums, street maps – they’re all just a click away on our smartphone. And it is thanks to rapid innovation in information and communications technology (ICT) that it all works smoothly and reliably.

    Without energy we would have no warm homes, no hot water for showers, and no electricity to keep food chilled, operate appliances or allow us to work at the computer. Up to now our economy has been driven – and our homes made comfortable – by oil, coal and gas. Slowly but surely, these natural resources are running out. If we want to continue to enjoy affordable power, heat and cooling in the future, we need to become more efficient in the way we use energy, get better at storing it reliably and…

    Whether it's jetting off on holiday, driving to work, visiting relatives, or simply going shopping, it all adds up to an entire lifetime spent on the move – on water, on land and in the air. Globalization has increased personal mobility as well as freight mobility: We eat kiwis from New Zealand, buy jeans made in China – products travel thousands of miles before they reach the consumer. Fraunhofer researchers are looking to control transportation and make it reliable, even eliminating it entirel…

    Day after day we read and hear in the media about natural disasters, accidents and terrorist attacks. Such news items are a stark reminder of how vulnerable our society is. The objective of safety researchers is to provide people and the environment with the best possible protection from threats. They adopt a long-term approach in order to gain control of all the different phases that occur in a disaster, focusing on early detection, prevention, direct protection and quickly overcoming the conse…
