Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP

WE MAKE MATERIALS FIT FOR THE FUTURE!

Creative solutions are the key to overcoming the challenges of the present and the future - whether they be climate change, pandemics, the energy transition, structural change or new mobility concepts.

Fraunhofer IAP tackles these challenges through innovative materials, processes and technologies, targeting the entire value chain - from the idea to the customized prototype.

 

 

BIOECONOMY and
SUSTAINABILITY

 

We tap sustainable raw materials and enable a circular economy to reduce dependency on fossil energy sources.

 

ENERGY TRANSITION
and MOBILITY

 

The integration of innovative materials into components and products is a key to the energy transition and the evolution of new mobility concepts.

 

HEALTH and
QUALITY of LIFE

 

From arteries to wrist: For new active ingredients, products and processes for medicine, medical technology and cosmetics, we offer individual solutions from a single source.

 

INDUSTRY and
TECHNOLOGY

 

We are your competent partner along the value chain: from innovative materials to market-relevant prototypes.
