For many employees, especially scientists, Fraunhofer is am important stepping stone for a further career in industry and research.
Many former employees would like to stay in touch with Fraunhofer even after their departure. And the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is in turn very interested as well to keep and deepen the valuable contact with its alumni.
For this reason, the Fraunhofer-Alumni-Verein was founded in October 2015. It provides the foundation for the Fraunhofer Alumni Net.
