About us

Under the motto »Making Ideas Happen«, we have been sharing our findings on electronic packaging and innovative technologies in microelectronics on the Fraunhofer Institute for Microintegration and Reliability (IZM) scientific blog since September 5, 2019. RealIZM is the first Fraunhofer science blog dedicated to microelectronics.

RealIZM is an online communication platform, dedicated to sharing our R&D ideas and information on current research topics. In their text and video contributions, our scientists provide an insight into the world of microelectronics and the research and development work of Fraunhofer IZM. The blog represents a profound scientific forum for communicating with electronics enthusiasts and making ideas come to life.

This conceptual approach was recognized by the German Research Foundation in the »International Research Marketing Ideas Competition«.
