Research Groups

We are known internationally for our excellence and expertise in basic science & technology disciplines. We focus on developing methodologies, understanding complexity in all its shapes and sizes and enhancing system thinking in research as important prerequisites for interdisciplinary research. By combining our strong disciplines, we explore new emerging scientific areas and enable promising innovations in the light of societal challenges. Open science is our standard.
