FZI Friends' Association

About us

In 1984, 26 members founded the FZI Friends‘ Association, an association of affiliated companies, organisations and individuals, to foster the connection between the research and development and its application in practice.

Today, about 80 companies, organisations and individuals involve themselves in the FZI Friends‘ Association. They benefit from the association‘s network to exchange knowledge about methodical, technological and economic developments in the field of innovative information technology.
