Fraunhofer Institute for Technological Trend Analysis
The Fraunhofer Institute for Technological Trend Analysis INT creates, and continually updates, a comprehensive overview of the general research and technology landscape and of the entire spectrum of technological development, national and international. Our clients are bodies from state and industry. We consolidate the general overview with our own specialized analyses and forecasts in selected technologies. With the support of our highly-versatile, state-of-the-art measurement infrastructure, the Institute also carries out theoretical work and experiments on electromagnetic and nuclear effects.
Future Security Conference 2013
The security of individuals or our society as a whole might seem commonplace today, but its true value can only be appreciated when it is lost. Organized crime, international terrorism and natural disasters are among the threats that may endanger security. To address these problems and to see what solutions science and technology can provide, the Fraunhofer Group for Defense and Security VVS hosts the Future Security Conference.
The Future Security serves as an international platform for scientists, decision makers and other stakeholders from industry as well as public authorities to discuss all aspects of security-related research and technology. The 8th Future Security will take place from September 17 to 19, 2013 at the permanent representation of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia in Berlin. The Fraunhofer VVS invites you to participate in this event and share your views on the challenges of creating future security.
