Press Release / 15.5.2014

Prof. Johanna Wanka, German federal Minister of Education and Research (BMBF), opened the first E³-Research Factory in Chemnitz, in which the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft will be researching solutions for resource-efficient production for the future. Three additional demonstration sites with differing research priorities are presently under construction. Innovative technologies and pilot application projects will be developed and tested under the new E³-research approach in close practical cooperation with partners from industry. This approach focuses equally upon the efficient use of resources, on emissions neutrality, and on people.
