Corona Virus – Specific Immediate Aid

Current Information on the Corona Virus (COVID-19)

Federal and state governments have reacted to the spreading of COVID-19 by taking extensive measures in order to ensure the best possible welfare of the population in Germany.

At Fraunhofer IWU, we have also taken far-reaching measures to protect our employees, project partners and the public from the corona virus. For this reason we are currently mainly working from home, yet we remain available to you by phone and email.

We will be happy to support you in the current situation by applying our expertise.
