Fraunhofer IMW looks back on more than sixteen years of applied socio-economic research and experience at the Leipzig location. Originally founded as Fraunhofer Center for Central and Eastern Europe MOEZ in 2006, the reorientation of the DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 certified institute has been reflected in its new name, Fraunhofer Center for International Management and Knowledge Economy IMW, since 2016.

Research at the Fraunhofer IMW is currently organized in four interdisciplinary research divisions:

The Staff of the Institute Management, the Organizational Development and Quality Management Unit, the Administration and Marketing and Communication Division support the scientific work as service facilities.

We are looking forward to your inquiry:
