Main Hero Background


At the Fraunhofer Institute, we enjoyed exclusive behind-the-scenes access to sensitive areas, including the world-renowned prototyping rooms. We heard from Geoff White, investigative journalist and cybersecurity specialist expert, who offered us some fascinating insights into the possible futures of cybersecurity and the Dark Web. We also heard more about the work of the Fraunhofer Institute from Dr. Stephan Guttowski to the Excellence-Cluster ‘Digitale Vernetzung’. Dr. Guttowski offered technical insight and talked about areas of mutual interest, including the Fraunhofer’s digital networking Lighthouse Project. He was joined by Dr. Torsten Oelke, CEO of CUBE – the global innovation ecosystem that draws B2B startups and leading industry players together.
