His primary research interests are in the area of Benchmarking, Total Quality Management and EFQM, in both the public and private sector as well as in the industry and service sector.

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft undertakes applied research of direct utility to private and public enterprise and of wide benefit to society. Its services are solicited by customers and contractual partners in industry, the service sector and public administration. The organization also accepts commissions and funding from German federal and state ministries and government departments to participate in future-oriented research projects with the aim of finding innovative solutions to issues concerning the industrial economy and society in general.

At present, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft maintains some 80 research units, including 58 Fraunhofer Institutes, at over 40 different locations in Germany. The majority of the roughly 12,500 staff are qualified scientists and engineers, who work with an annual research budget of over 1 billion euros. Of this sum, more than €900 million is generated through contract research. Roughly two thirds of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft’s contract research revenue is derived from contracts with industry and from publicly financed research projects.

The remaining one third is contributed by the German federal and state governments, partly as a means of enabling the institutes to pursue more fundamental research in areas that are likely to become relevant to industry and society in five or ten years’ time.

Affiliated research centres and representative offices in Europe, the USA and Asia provide contact with the regions of greatest importance to present and future scientific progress and economic development.
