Leibniz Institute for Polymer Research
The Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden in Dresden (German: Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung) – in short IPF Dresden – is a non-university research institute and a member of the Leibniz Association. The IPF is carrying out fundamental as well as application-oriented research in all areas of polymer science and investigates polymer materials with new or improved characteristics. In the material development, emphasis is given to nanotechnological aspects as well as to biosystem interfaces.
|Purpose||Research in polymers|
|Headquarters||Dresden, Saxony, Germany|
|Prof. Dr. Brigitte Voit (CSO) Dr. Lilla Farkas (CEO)|
The research spectrum of the institute is very broad. It ranges from synthesis, analysis and modification of polymers to theory, modeling and processing of polymers. The institute's research results provide the basis for innovations in future technologies such as communication technology, medical technology, traffic engineering, energy generation and storage, and environment protection technologies.
