To gain knowledge is the main impetus for all our research activities. What motivates our scientists is to know more than we know now. Starting from this excellent basic research, we develop completely new procedures, technologies and products for society. We are convinced that new applications enable a more environmentally friendly use of resources. Especially when our main interest is in life and nature, we feel it is our responsibility to find a good balance between economic and ethical aspects. Our research is aligned with the megatrends of the future. Solutions for such enormous problems can only be found if we think beyond individual scientific disciplines. We firmly believe in an interdisciplinary approach that is systematized in a matrix structure. In more straightforward terms: our scientists show their commitment where their research work is needed most. The Technische Universität Ilmenau ranks among the German universities with the largest amount of third-party funding in engineering sciences * – a remarkable success for a university of medium size. Also, the efficiency of third-party funds, i.e. the average funding raised by each of our 100 professors, is among the highest all over Germany. * Source: German Research Foundation DFG 19 FORSCHUNG RESEARCH
