Forschungsinstitut für Anwendungsorientierte Wissensverarbeitung

The Research Institute for Applied Knowledge Processing (FAW/n) conducts research and development in the field of application-oriented knowledge processing, relating to politics, business, public institutions and society.

Our work is

  • interdisciplinary.
  • holistic.
  • practical.
  • realistic.
  • pragmatic.
  • mathematically sound.
  • globally oriented.
  • shaped by 30 years of experience.

Our strategic goal is a worldwide eco-social market economy that combines a consistent market orientation with an equally consistent focus on world-ethical concerns in the areas of culture, social affairs and the environment.

For example, FAW/n was involved in the international processes that led to the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in New York in September 2015 and of the Paris Agreement in December 2015, and is particularly committed to climate-neutrality in this context. FAW/n is also working with the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development on the theme “from free to fair trade.”

In addition, FAW/n also focuses on the interests of its donors, e.g. sustainable mobility, corporate climate-neutrality, mechanical engineering, innovations in the energy and real estate sectors, as well as stability and regulation in the financial sector.

FAW/n was approved in December 2004 as a German non-profit foundation having legal capacity under civil law. It continues the successful work of the Ulm Research Institute for Applied Knowledge Processing (FAW, 1987-2004). FAW/n cooperates with partners of the University of Ulm, as well as other universities and colleges.
