From Fundamental Research to Application

The Institute for Composite Materials (IVW) is a non-profit research institution of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate and the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. It researches fundamentals for future applications of composite materials, which are of great importance for the mobility of the future, the fields of energy, climate and environment, production technology as well as for health care. New materials, construction methods and manufacturing processes are investigated and - after the basic understanding has been developed - tailor-made for the respective product requirements. The focus is on the entire process chain, from basic materials to characterization and simulation, from construction methods and production technology to component testing and recycling. New ideas and innovative concepts are not only an essential part of the research and further development of the institute, but also lead to spin-offs. Newly acquired knowledge is transferred, above all into science, but also into teaching, the interested public and application.
