Fraunhofer 3D printing and nanotech gets $37.3M boost from Hamburg

From large scale metal 3D printing through to quantum-dot technology, the Fraunhofer Society is behind some of the most pivotal advances in technology. Back in 2005, one of the society’s 69 institutes (the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits – IIS) even invented and patented the MP3 file format, using Suzanne Vega’s Tom’s Diner as a test track for sound quality. An international leader in scientific breakthroughs, the Fraunhofer Society has now been granted EUR 30 million (USD 37.3 million) by the German government to fund cutting-edge 3D printing and nanotechnology research. The money will be used by the Fraunhofer […]
