We engage in collaborative research projects with academic & industrial partners. Thus, we transfer knowledge into application, strengthen networking & talent management.
3rd Party Funded Joint Research Projects
MTET scientists are involved in a variety of 3rd party funded national & European collaborative research projects with academic & industrial partners that are complimentary to the research programs funded through the Helmholtz-Association.
Targets include the investigation of fundamental research questions not addressed in the Helmholtz program, the application of knowlegde generated in the program to other important research areas, the support of doctoral researchers in new research fields, and the transfer of research results into innovation together with partners from industry.
