Objective

Imagine if the majority of new products in the future did not have to be developed from scratch, but rather could be produced by altering, enriching, modifying, and coating existing materials to create multifunctional surfaces and intelligent systems.

In a world where resources are becoming ever scarcer, energy-saving ever more important, and sustainability paramount, our approach enables the quality of products to be improved and so made suitable for future applications.

Our goal is to take surfaces and materials and generate intelligent additional properties and hence new innovative products and applications.

The Fraunhofer POLO® was founded to realize this goal.
