The year 2019 brought a host of interesting international encounters. Scientific and political delegations from numerous countries visited Fraunhofer IAO in order to discuss the latest research trends with German experts.
Delegation of scientists from the city-state of Singapore
On April 13, a delegation of scientists from the city-state of Singapore visited Fraunhofer IAO’s Neurolab to learn about methods of ergonomic workplace design and the institute’s current research in the fields of neuro-ergonomics and neuro-adaptive technologies. Their interest in these subjects has been prompted by the serious impact of demographic change, with which the Singapore economy is also confronted. The group led by Zaqy Mohamad, Minister of State in the Ministry of National Development and Ministry of Manpower, gathered information on German labor policy in this area and successful examples of preventive corporate strategies. As a result, cooperation between Fraunhofer IAO and the Work Safety and Health Council of Singapore is to be expanded.
