[Translate to English:] fortiss Mittelstand Forschungsverbünde

Is your company interested in researching new products, new processes or new services that are technologically advanced, or developing them on a cooperative, industry-wide basis? Are you considering a project that will look forward years instead of months?

A project where software has to perform tasks that cannot be taken for granted? In which the first priority is discovering how these tasks can best be solved? Are you looking for someone who understands the inner workings of software and which algorithms and models are the best?

Then we would be pleased to serve as your research partner! You know what the software must do. And we know how it can do that. We define the project together. And specifically for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs), competitive funding opportunities with accelerated evaluation processes are available at both the state (Bavaria) and federal level, Central Innovation Program for SMEs, the Innovative SME initiative and the research grant program „Information and Communication Technology“ run by the Bavarian government.
