New materials are the drivers of new technologies. INM combines the two worlds of multidisciplinary scientific research and material oriented technology transfer under one roof. Chemistry, physics, biology, materials science, and engineering interact in close cooperation and at high level. An essential focus of our work is the transfer of biological principles to the design of new materials, structures and surfaces. Our results create and improve flexible displays and intelligent grippers, high-performance batteries and efficient solar cells or implants for personalized therapies and regenerative medicine.
