The Fraunhofer-inHaus-Center is a creative think tank unique throughout Europe. Several Fraunhofer institutes, various business partners and young start-up companies combine their potentials, conduct cooperative research and development work in a mutually beneficial way. At the Fraunhofer-inHaus-Center we develop, test and demonstrate innovative systems and products with our network partners with a focus on the areas smart home, connected healthcare with individuals and their needs always at the center of attention.
In the inHaus application laboratories we test, for example, prototypes in practice in realistic environments. One example is the living lab HealthCare that contains a demonstration area of 600 m² in which various different scenarios in hospitals and assisted living can be collected and realized – a core piece of our creative think tank. Also our innovation platform is enriched by very interesting start-ups that complement our center with novel products and services for health and care. The whole range of services is rounded off by the field smart city with the goal of a more liveable city development.
The Fraunhofer-inHaus-Center consists of the inHaus1, a semi-detached house, and the inHaus2, a utility building. In the inHaus1 we push ahead projects regarding smart home (security, energy and comfort) as well as healthy living in old age (human-technology interaction, assistance systems). In the inHaus2 we work predominantly on technical solutions for hospitals and nursing homes and innovative health subjects for self-determined life in old age.
