Scientific advisors at our Oldenburg Branch

At the Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg, we work and research on future-oriented topics. As part of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, we set important impulses for the future in applied research in the field of hearing, speech and audio technology as well as in the topics of mobile neurotechnology and participative healthcare.

In order to transfer basic research into practice, the scientific advisors support us with their expertise in our scientific projects. Through scientific collaborations, we are closely connected with the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, the Jade University of Applied Sciences, the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer and other hearing research institutions. The Fraunhofer IDMT is also a partner in the »Hearing4all« cluster of excellence. Short distances and a lively exchange are also our strengths. With the help of scientific advisors, we are advancing the further development of the Oldenburg branch of the institute and strengthening our unique selling points.
