Welcome Message

Welcome to the home page of Fraunhofer Portugal!

Our web site tries to compile all basic information about us and our activities in Portugal. Please note, that Fraunhofer Portugal is the legal entity that operates the research centers of Fraunhofer in Portugal and serves as entry point for contacts to our German research institutes only.

Currently there is only one research center, AICOS, which is dedicated to develop ICT solutions in the areas of AAL and ICT4D. For more detailed information please navigate to the web site of AICOS.

If you are looking for a contact to one of our German institutes, or if you need help to identify the best partner inside the family of Fraunhofer institutes, please let us know by using the inquiries form and our team will get in touch with you.

In any case I hope you enjoy our web site and would be pleased if our activities can contribute to serving your demands!


Dirk Elias,

President of the Executive Board

(until January 2017)
