The research of the BPI links fundamental aspects of polymer sciences with technological engineering. A fundamental understanding of molecular properties in complex materials forms the basis for novel polymer-based innovations able to address arising global challenges.
By combining the resources of the three universities, an extraordinary broad variety of scientific instrumentation and infrastructure as well as novel interdisciplinary teaching concepts becomes available.
The Bavarian Polymer Institute particularily supports the application for coordinated research programs of the three universities. These include Collaborative Research Centers and Research Training Groups.
Collaborative Research Centre 840
"From particulate nanosystems to mesotechnology"
Collaborative Research Centre 814
Collaborative Research Center TRR 225 Biofabrikation
"From the fundamentals of biofabrication towards functional tissue models"
Collaborative Research Center 1375 Microplastics
"Understanding the mechanisms and processes of biological effects, transport and formation:
From model to complex systems as a basis for new solutions"
Solar Technologies Go Hybrid (SolTech)
"European infrastructure for spectroscopy, scattering and imaging of soft matter"
Trilateraler DFG-Forschungsverbund mit Israel und Palästina
"Elektrogesponnene Polymervliese als hochfunktionale Substrate für Anwendungen in der Wasserverschmutzung und medizinischen Anwendungen"
Research Training Group 1640
"Photophysics of Synthetic and Biological Multichromophoric Systems"
