The topics energy, raw materials, climate, sustainability, and the shift from a linear to a circular economy are relevant for Germany and internationally. This is why we get actively involved in transnational project development. We would like to present some international projects to you that we are carrying out in Europe and around the world.  

In order to exploit synergies in technology development and to expand scientific added value we cooperate with partners from all over the world. We have strategic cooperations with Kuwait, the University of Alberta in Edmonton/Canada and the University of Birmingham, UK.

You can find examples of our transnational project development here.
