Experiences from and with the FZI

The FZI was a great support to us during our company foundation. After all, the FZI's application-oriented research projects were crucial in enabling us to develop our technology so close to the customer.

The FZI makes science practical – andrena benefits from this. Together, we have developed solutions for medium-sized industry. Knowledge carriers from the FZI are very supportive of our innovations.

I came to the FZI with my own idea. Here, I was given the opportunity to work on it from scratch, develop it further and even apply for a patent. Thanks to the FZI, I was able to exploit the full potential of my idea, implement it in the ROBINA project and do my doctorate on it.
