Within Fraunhofer INT, the Business Unit TIP pools the TASP Department’s activities for the public sector, non-military clients. The customers are the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), and other national and international organizations and players. The work is clustered around innovation planning for the field of Civil Security, but new areas of expertise are currently being developed.
The Business Unit TIP thereby not only functions as an interface between European institutions and national ministries/governmental organisations, but also between supplier and demand side.
Another of the TIP Unit’s special features is its excellent networking within the security research community, both in the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft as well as in Germany and Europe, which also makes specific external expertise available for clients whenever required. We engage with and provide advice to various security research bodies, nationally and at European level (for example, within the European Commission). With comprehensive evaluation of the information thus accessed, we ensure that our consulting in strategic Technology and Innovation Planning is always state of the art.
