Together with companies, the Fraunhofer Institute for Software and Systems Engineering ISST identifies the strategic value of their data and makes it usable - from data preparation to the development of new business models, the institute offers complete system solutions. The scientists research the value and confident handling of data in data spaces for logistics, healthcare and the data economy. They develop solutions for data management and the development of data architectures.
Fraunhofer ISST plays a leading role in strategic digital initiatives in Germany and Europe. Examples include the International Data Spaces Association (IDSA) and Gaia-X, European Association for Data and Cloud AISBL, which aim to achieve cloud and data sovereignty and thus create the basis for a fair data economy in Germany and Europe. Fraunhofer ISST is also a central research partner in the Catena-X Automotive Network, a research project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection with around 100 million euros as part of the economic stimulus package.
Together with its customers and partners from industry and as an advisor to politicians, the institute is creating data spaces for the secure and controllable use of data across company boundaries - for Germany, Europe and worldwide.
