  • It is a known fact that adhesives may smell unpleasant. However, as Fraunhofer researchers have recently discovered, this doesn't need to be the case. Through extensive research on acrylic adhesives they were able to identify the substances responsible for the offensive odours. Manufacturers have the opportunity to optimize their production process.

  • The coming 5G mobile communications standard will not sate our hunger for data for very long. That is why Fraunhofer experts are already working on 6G together with partners from industry and research as part of the EU-sponsored TERRANOVA project. The goal is to create a network in the terahertz frequency range.
