Reliable and trusworthy identities are essential. Through them persons and things become unique and individual. In order to operate safely and free of doubt not just in the analogue, but also in the virtual world, the Innovationcluster „Next Generation ID“ develops ID technologies of the next generation for our society’s future.
At CeBIT’s opening day the Fraunhofer institutes as well as many Cluster partners started the Innovation Cluster „Next Generation ID“. As a fusion of five Fraunhofer Institutes, many industry partners and universities, the cluster bundles all necessary competencies to drive the development of ID technologies – from the formation of identities up to the implementation and application in prototypes and products. Bundesdruckerei-CEO Ulrich Hamann emphasized the great possibilities to recourse to the ideal location conditions in the region Berlin-Brandenburg. Here, top-class universities and institutional researchers meet innovative companies and build a stable network for the future market of secure identities. The federal states Berlin and Brandenburg are official supporters of the innovation cluster so that all locational advantages are used in the best possible way and an international partner for ID technologies can be established.
