About us



The unique combination of engineering expertise in safety, security, reliability and maintainability of systems and the transfer of innovative ideas in applied research enables ROSAS Center to become a valuable “safety factory” partner in technology development in key industrial domains including aerospace, automotive, energy and industrial automation.
Funded by the companies Johnson Electric International AG, Liebherr Machines Bulle SA, Meggitt SA and the School of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg – HEIA-FR, ROSAS operates as the extended applied research work bench in systems safety, security and reliability engineering for its industrial ROSAS partners as well as for other industrial clients and academic partners.
Closely linked to the HEIA-FR and its affiliate institute iSIS (institute of smart and secure systems) ROSAS creates and transforms knowledge by teaching students in safety and reliability as a demanding and future-oriented engineering discipline, thus translating it to the benefit of its industrial partners and clients and to our increasing network of clients and cooperation partners.
Located in Switzerland as the embodiment for quality and innovation ROSAS will evolve into an internationally highly acknowledged center of competence in systems engineering for safety-critical and highly-reliable applications.

In 2013 Dr. Wolfram Luithardt, teacher at the School of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg (HEIA-FR) had an idea to establish an international competence center in safety and reliability in Fribourg. Companies such as Johnson Electric International, Liebherr Machines Bulle, Meggitt and the HEIA-FR, all installed in the region of Fribourg gathered together to bring this idea to reality by creating the ROSAS Association Fribourg in June 2015. The objective is to use this new and unique center for the development of robust and safe systems. The development strategy of the association is to integrate collaborators from the HEIA-FR and senior engineers to this Robust and Safe Systems center – ROSAS center.

The years 2015 and 2016 were marked by the partnership between the school and the three companies from the region of Fribourg. In 2017 ROSAS center is able to cope with intensive national and international projects in several different industrial domains such as Aerospace, Space, Automotive, industrial Machinery and Railway with the support of the INNOSQUARE platform. Like what the smallest of ideas from which ROSAS center was born is turning into a success story and will keep growing.
