Welcome to the Fraunhofer-Research Institution for Large Structures in Production Engineering
The Fraunhofer-Research Institution for Large Structures in Production Engineering in Rostock is one of total five locations of Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (IPA) in Stuttgart. The main scope of the research covers the fields of production and manufacturing of large structures.
On a strong foundation of applied research, concepts for product and process innovations are developed and realized in research and development projects. Those are conducted with our cooperation partners in diverse future branches such as ship and steel construction, energy and environment technology, railway and utility vehicle manufacturing as well as machine and plant construction.
The Fraunhofer-Research Institution for Large Structures in Production Engineering collaborates closely with the chairs of Manufacturing Engineering and Joining Technology of Faculty for Mechanical Engineering and Marine Technology at University of Rostock. Furthermore, Fraunhofer AGP is a member of Fraunhofer Transport Alliance e.V. and multiple research associations and networks.
Since 2005, the location in Rostock has been expanded in three steps with a total size of more than 4000 m² of laboratory and office space to offer personalized engineering services to our industrial customers.
