Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung e.V.

The Fraunhofer Reporting System for irregularities or misconduct

As Europe’s largest organization for applied research and as a non-profit organization, we bear social responsibility. A lawful and value-oriented approach forms the basis of our identity. However, we also need your help to identify any problems. Legal breaches, white-collar crime or serious violations of Fraunhofer regulations can not only cause financial losses but also damage Fraunhofer's reputation, jeopardize funding and, in extreme cases, threaten our existence, including our jobs.

You can report any instances of misconduct related to your current or future professional activities with our secure electronic whistleblowing system (BKMS® System), known as the Fraunhofer Reporting System. You can do so completely anonymously and without a fear of repercussions at work. The responsible compliance team in the 2C Legal Affairs and Compliance directorate will handle your report. Confidentiality and impartiality have the highest priority. Information is followed up systematically and rigorously.


Thank you for your help and cooperation!
