We establish digital manufacturing technologies and future-oriented process engineering to create function-optimized components and materials for key industries, including the automotive and aerospace industries, building and construction, medical and health technologies, and chemistry and catalysis.

Building on our excellence in nano, energy and catalytic research, we are working on new ways to convert and store energy. By applying this knowledge, we strive to bring about a sustainable energy transition. We bring together all our expertise in quantum sciences across disciplinary boundaries to create new components, materials and concepts for quantum computers, sensors and communication.
