As a central pool for ideas and applications, the portal provides a secure environment to all users for collecting and developing their ideas. You may file applications for internal development programs, edit them and reuse them later. Furthermore, you may also participate in competitions with your ideas. Your ideas are only visible for you and the users you select.
The “Fraunhofer inspiration forum” in contrast is the place for exchange and a possibility to find team members for your venture. In addition, interesting links and challenges may be shared and discussed for inspiration. Entries in the inspiration forum may be accessed and commented by all users.
On your personal home page you also receive information about current competitions, program deadlines, and suitable events.
