FMD-Space for Startups & Founders

Learn more about the »FMD-Space« and our plans for the future!

The »FMD-Space« offers startups with an innovate product idea and a problem related to microelectronics access to the R&D infrastructure and technology know-how of the Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics as well as the two Leibniz institutes FBH and IHP. The goal of the collaboration is to jointly develop demonstrators and prototypes, together with a coherent business model.

Important Information:
For the moment the FMD-Space has finished its support rounds but the need for strong new startups in the microelectronics sector certainly stays intact. To ensure an ongoing support in the future, we are already working on the set-up of new collaboration models for innovative startups and their specific needs – so stay tuned, more is about to come!
