Our partners

The Fraunhofer Institutes IGD, IGP, IKTS and IOSB form the SOT research network, which is the only of its kind in Europe.


Our context

As part of the Ocean Technology Campus Rostock with its underwater test field, our group is integrated into a vibrant research ecosystem.


Our location

Rostock's cargo and fishing port is an attractive, versatile harbor located right next to the Warnow River and the Baltic Sea. This is where the research group has moved into its offices at Ocean Technology Campus Basecamp.
