Wilhelm Bauer’s outstanding expertise has a huge impact on research and business. And for this he was honoured by the state of Baden-Württemberg, Germany as a “maker of the future”. Right from the start, the role of people at work, their individual and team-oriented functions – and their interaction with each other and with technology – have been the focus of his research and successful collaboration with companies and organisations. As a bridge-builder in a hybrid world, he advises politicians and businesspeople, and is active on several committees.

Wilhelm Bauer is also Chairman of the Fraunhofer Association for Innovation Research, Executive Director of Fraunhofer Italia Research s.c.a.r.l, a member of the Executive Board of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, and a member of acatech, the German Academy of Science and Engineering.
