U.S. Secretary of Commerce Pritzker visits Fraunhofer
United States Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker visited Fraunhofer Gesellschaft. After welcoming her and her delegation, Fraunhofer president Professor Reimund Neugebauer gave them a presentation on the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and how it operates. The secretary of commerce also took the opportunity to sign the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft’s Golden Book.
The visit was arranged by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, an agency within the U.S. Department of Commerce, after Pritzker had expressed a particular interest in the way Fraunhofer operates. The Fraunhofer president encouraged continued dialog on the U.S. president’s manufacturing initiative, the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation. Pointing out German advances in cyber physical production systems, Reimund Neugebauer offered the Department of Commerce a local partnership to address the topic through Fraunhofer USA in addition to transatlantic cooperation on strategic projects.
Online-survey: What would you like to see in the hotel of the future?
Vibrating beds, perhaps, or smartphone check-in and LED lighting? As part of the FutureHotel project, Fraunhofer IAO is asking guests to tell them what features are desired for tomorrow’s hotels. The results of the online survey will go on to form the basis of IAO's research as they continue to work on shaping the hotel of the future.
