In favour of cosmopolitanism, diversity, democracy, and the rule of law

Research at Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft would be inconceivable without its employees, including those with migration backgrounds - they are the foundation of our scientific system. Internationality, diversity, and respect are integral components of the Fraunhofer mission statement and the Fraunhofer Code of Conduct.

These values are supported, amongst other means, by Fraunhofer's membership in the United Nations Global Compact and its signing of and commitment to the Diversity Charter. We are firmly committed to cosmopolitanism, diversity, democracy, and the rule of law.
