Some of the most prestigious research institutions are located within the Science Region Bonn. Sankt Augustin has been one of the largest and most influential locations in Germany for computer technology for over 35 years. The campus of Castle Birlinghoven (IZB) hosts four institutes and two associate institutes of the Fraunhofer Society. Among them are the Institutes of Autonomous Intelligent Systems, Applied Computer Technology, Media Communication as well as Algorithm and Scientific Mathematics.

The German Aerospace Centre (DLR) with its headquarters in Köln-Porz/Troisdorf and a branch in Bonn is the largest research facility in Germany, focusing on research in technology and engineering. Moreover, the DLR is the only institution that, apart from its own research, translates the Space Programme of the German Government into reality.

Bonn also homes three of the eighty German Max Planck Institutes: the MPI for Mathematics, the MPI for Research of Collective Goods and the MPI for Radioastronomy, which also runs the radio telescope Effelsberg which has a diameter of 100m.

The departments of the Fraunhofer Society in Wachtberg focus their research on High-Frequency Physics and Radar Technique, Communication, Information Processing, and Ergonomics as well as on Optronics and Pattern Recognition. 

Forschungszentrum caesar

The centre of advanced european studies and research (caesar) in Bonn is well known for its research and its goal to be a think tank for new markets, its flexible organisation and its market oriented research. Work carried out at caesar focuses on three main aspects: Materials Science and Nanotechnology, Biotechnology and Ergonomics in Communications.

The research of the European Academy in Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler concentrates on effects of scientific and technological developments on the individual and social life of people and their natural environment. The investigations are carried out in temporary international and interdisciplinary research groups.

The BG-Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BGIA) in Sankt Augustin is the central institute for research and testing of the German Berufsgenossenschaften (BG), the institutions for statutory accident insurance and prevention in Germany. The BGIA supports the Berufsgenossenschaften particularly in solving scientific and technical problems relating to safety and health protection at work.
