Information on the coronavirus pandemic

Message from the Institute Management of Fraunhofer ILT on the current coronavirus pandemic to customers, partners, visitors and those interested in our services

At the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, the safety and health of our employees, customers and visitors are top priorities. To deal with the Covid-19 pandemic, Fraunhofer ILT set up a crisis team that has defined preventive measures for the institute in coordination with the authorities. This team has been working very successfully since the beginning of the pandemic; thanks to the measures the team has developed, we have been able to continue working on your projects with few delays.

One of our major goals is to make contacts traceable and to avoid chains of infection. We have largely converted training courses, seminars, workshops and conferences to digital formats in 2020. Where official guidelines and the risk situation allow, we are also holding some meetings again as face-to-face events in compliance with pandemic regulations. Not only does face-to-face communication create innovation and help understanding, but it is also an important part of our institute culture.

And of course, guests are welcome – in compliance with the given regulations. If you would like to visit us or participate in upcoming meetings, please get in touch with your direct contact person by phone or e-mail. If you do not have a contact person at the Institute, please email

You will find more detailed information on upcoming seminars and conferences at Fraunhofer ILT on the institute's website under the heading “Events.” We ask for your understanding for the unusual, but necessary measures.

Stay healthy!
