The Fogra Technical Committees

These are the heart of Fogra and it is on these committees that the scientific direction of the institute is formulated. They perform a creative and a supervisory function and, at the same time, help the institute to stay close to industry and embody the joint research approach.

Dialogue between creativity and oversight

The success of our activities is crucially dependent upon a careful selection of research topics. Advice regarding Fogra’s research programme is provided in the Technical Committees and the Executive Committee.

Following recommendations from the various committees, it is the Fogra Executive Committee that, in accordance with the statutes, determines the research programme and approves the projects for the following period.

research programme

Each of the 6 technical committees generally meets twice a year and brings together industry experts and Fogra scientists to offer current projects the benefits of industry experience and to discuss new research projects.

This hard-wired closeness to the industry also ensures that the results will be implemented.
