Fraunhofer Application Centre KEIM, Fraunhofer IAO
The first Fraunhofer Application Centre in Baden-Württemberg was opened on the 24th September 2012, at the University of Applied Sciences in Esslingen. The "Competence Centre for energetic and IT mobility interfaces KEIM" ("Kompetenzzentrum für energetische und informationstechnische Mobilitätsschnittstellen KEIM") brings together scientists of the Fraunhofer IAO and the University of Applied Sciences in Esslingen. The Fraunhofer Gesellschaft (Fraunhofer Society) is exploring new paths with the application centre and aims to promote the transfer of innovation into the economy/into the business world.
The vision of KEIM is the shared use of electromobile resources in urban spaces and encompasses vehicles, data and infrastructure. Mobility is available when required. The scientists in the Fraunhofer application centre KEIM will research and develop the required interfaces. The research will be conducted in an industry-oriented way and will be relevant for SMEs in particular. Furthermore, the research activities will be closely linked to the courses taught at the University of Applied Sciences.
