  • A start-up trio at FAU have developed a new technology which can produce passive high-frequency components directly from computer models. Now the researchers will receive funding of 1.1 million euros from the EXIST programme of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy to develop the technology into a market-ready product.

  • About 20 month ago, San José State University and FAU embarked on an entrepreneurial collaboration leveraging the immense research capabilities of FAU and SJSU's powerful and robust Silicon Valley ecosystem.

  • Roughly 200 participants from business and industry met during the first ‘Global Market Leaders Innovation Day’ run by WirtschaftsWoche and FAU to discuss innovations in the area of energy and climate. FAU President Prof. Dr. Joachim Hornegger presented FAU’s strengths in innovation.
