Over the last ten years, Dresden has developed into one of the most important scientific centers in Germany. The twelve Fraunhofer facilities in the city together employ over 1,300 staff.

With School@Fraunhofer, most of these offer students in classes 9 to 12 the opportunity to learn about Fraunhofer and experience the thrill of research. The young people are able to learn about the work of the institutes covering a wide variety of topics.
