Here we list the newly added projects.


Healthy Air Initiative – Research and advisory program for healthy ambient air

The "Healthy Air Initiative" aims at providing companies with quick, practical, and scientifically proven solutions to reduce the transmission of viruses via aerosols. With this in mind, practicable ventilation concepts for aerosol prevention will be developed and contact points for advice will be set up as part of three project phases.


ProPolis: Basic conditions for implementing PALM-4U - practicability and continuation strategy

The objective of the BMBF funded project “Urban Climate under Change” is to develop an innovative and user-friendly urban climate model called “PALM-4U”.


"AVATOR" – Anti-Virus-Aerosol: Testing, Operation, Reduction

In addition to technologies for purifying the indoor air, the AVATOR project investigates the spread of aerosols and derives hygiene concepts for different scenarios.


MetaVib – making vibroacoustic metamaterials suitable for industrial use

The “MetaVib” project aims at making vibroacoustic metamaterials suitable for use in industry. The Fraunhofer consortium of experts makes it possible for the first time to consider the entire VAMM value chain.

    Structure-borne noise generated by utilization and water impact is not transmitted into the building and noise in adjacent rooms is prevented.

    The transmission of low-frequency vibrations from installations and equipment into the structure can be considerably reduced already at the point of introduction.
