The work of Fraunhofer IAO is based on the idea
that in times of global competition, running a
company successfully means using new techno-
logical potentials in a profitable way. In its close
cooperation with the Institut für Arbeitswissen-
schaft und Technologiemanagement (IAT, insti-
tute of work science and technology manage-
ment) of the University of Stuttgart, Fraunhofer
IAO brings together fundamental research at a
university with applied sciences and business
practice.
In our research area of ‘Mobility Innovation’,
around 30 scientists from different disciplines
work on solutions for the mobility of tomorrow.
Their focus is on commonly used mobility sys-
tems, new vehicle concepts, integrated fleet
and charging management and the charging
infrastructure in urban areas. Fraunhofer IAO
supports companies turning technical innova-
tions into business models in the automobile,
construction, energy and IT industries.
Within joint research projects – such as Fu-
tureCar, Elektromobile Stadt, Gemeinschaftliche
Mobilitätssystem and Micro Smart Grid – Fraun-
hofer IAO and partners from industry and munic-
ipalities research issues of significant relevance
pertaining to future mobility.
From technical innovation to business model
