We are fostering Bavaria to master digital transformation!


fortiss has been a recognised research partner for pioneering technologies in software, systems and service engineering for over ten years.

Our mission is to strengthen the competitiveness of Bavaria as a technology location. Our activities range from basic research to applied prototypes. Amongst other things, fortiss researches the potential of AI technologies and works on the reliability of self-learning systems so that companies can develop innovative products and open up new areas of business and services for SMEs.

In addition, we configure the digital processes used by the public administration and work on the optimisation of information management for authorities, offices and ministries.
