Our vision: Establish an agile, flexible and digitized industry

Competitive digization applications, agile production processes and attractive new business models require a cognitive Internet for industry. It links the physical world of things with the digital world of data and learning algorithms for highly intelligent services. The cognitive Internet is therefore the key to the digital sovereignty and economic competitiveness of German industry.

With the Fraunhofer Cluster of Excellence Cognitive Internet Technologies CCIT, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft works in three research centers on key technologies for the cognitive, industrial Internet. The aim is to establish a viable infrastructure for an agile, flexible and digitized industry.

The Fraunhofer CCIT is a network of more than 20 Fraunhofer Institutes from the fields of microelectronics, information and communication technology and production. The joint research and development work focuses on the technology fields of IoT communication, trusted data rooms and machine learning.
