What is the Fraunhofer TechBridge Challenge?
The Fraunhofer TechBridge Challenge is a core offering of the TechBridge Program at the Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems (CSE). Through its industry-sponsored Challenges, TechBridge accelerates promising technologies by conducting targeted industry-driven validation projects. To execute these validation projects, TechBridge leverages the vast Fraunhofer R&D network, consisting of over 80 Fraunhofer centers worldwide. Previous projects have included prototyping, demonstration, modeling, and testing for technology developers.
TechBridge typically runs several sponsored programs per year, focused on specific innovation areas and culminating in the selection of top teams to receive testing, validation, or demonstration projects from Fraunhofer.
