Cooperation and services
Development of load-adapted lightweight structures
The ILK supports industrial partners in solving problems, especially in the field of modern lightweight structural design with high-performance materials.
Scientific consulting services include expert opinions, feasibility studies, calculations and prototype development. For this purpose, comprehensive material and component tests can be carried out at the ILK, even at short notice.
Lightweight engineering and polymer technology (lectures, workshops, seminars)
In line with the institute's profile, fundamental and current scientific topics in the field of lightweight engineering and polymer technology are covered across materials and products, and are also presented by expert staff using application-specific case studies.
The ILK's events address the different needs of function holders at all hierarchical levels. The spectrum ranges from intensive training courses on specialist individual problems of small startups to overview events for the top management of large companies and other institutions, in which future-oriented trends and sustainable development strategies are highlighted.
