Growing out of many years’ intensive cooperation between the Frauenhofer Institutes in Erlangen and FAU, ENETLZE takes advantage of the unique concentration of electronic systems research activities and industries based in Nuremberg-Erlangen. A team of nine – including academic and industry guests – will take part in the second leg of Science Sets Sail.

ENETLZE  is a new Excellence Programme developed between Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS), Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Systems and Device Technology (IISB) and FAU, combining excellent basic and applied research with career development for young academics.

Launched as a pilot in January 2015, ENETLZE is funded by the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs- and Media, Energy and Technology. Its two major focus areas are: power electronics for converting and distributing electrical energy; and low-power electronics for applications with minimal energy requirements.

In addition to mentoring, coaching and networking, the centre enables role-swapping among partners to gain new work experiences in different organisations. The special feature of this programme is that an industrial partner provides third-party support. So, industry-, applied- and basic-research work together to create new high-level research topics and, at the same time, to develop excellent high-potential academics.

Science Sets Sail – connecting people

Science Sets Sail is an excellent opportunity for ENETLZE participants to expand their personal network and to train in collaboration skills. We also see it as a perfect opportunity to get to know other FAU members and to strategically develop new ideas for future joint projects.

Science Sets Sail will allow the centre to strengthen its relationship with the universities of Tallinn, Helsinki and Turku, which are all strong academic partners. Additionally, ENETLZE represents a variety of internationally-active companies and will create opportunities to enhance exchange between academia and industry in the visited cities and amongst participating researchers.
