FZI Friends' Association
Business-related institution such as the FZI maintain particularly intensive contacts with companies in the cooperating industries as part of their industrial projects. In order to improve the integration of the FZI beyond these project-related contacts into the industries nationwide and regionally into the general economic activities, the FZI Friends’ Association (“Förderverein Forschungszentrum Informatik (FZI) e. V.”) was established in 1984 by 26 founding members. Today, the FZI Friends’ Association has about 80 members.
The FZI Friends’ Association is a network of companies and other organizations with legal capacity that want to use modern information technologies. To this end, they maintain contact with each other and with the FZI and support the work of the research institution. A membership also enhances the opportunity to benefit from FZI‘s competence in research by initiating, planning and realizing new projects.
