Welcome to Fraunhofer ITWM!

The core competence of ITWM is mathematics: the language used by scientists and engineers to formulate models for technical systems. In our time it is particularly important, as it provides efficient algorithms to compute and analyse such models.

The ITWM 's mission is to develop this technology to give innovative impulses and put them into practice together with industry partners . Since its foundation in 1995 the ITWM has shown great success in building mathematical bridges between applied sciences and concrete application. Clients are large international companies as well as small and medium regional enterprises.
