The Nachwuchsakademie will take place at the Leibniz Institute for New Materials (INM) in Saarbrücken.
New materials are the drivers of new technologies. INM combines the two worlds of multidisciplinary scientific research and material oriented technology transfer under one roof. Chemistry, physics, biology, materials science, and engineering interact in close cooperation and at high level. An essential focus of our work is the transfer of biological principles to the design of new materials, structures and surfaces. Our results create and improve flexible displays and intelligent grippers, high-performance batteries and efficient solar cells or implants for personalized therapies and regenerative medicine.
The INM, based in Saarbrücken, Germany, is connected with numerous research organizations and technology companies worldwide. It is closely linked to Saarland University through seven joint professorships. The INM is an institute of the Leibniz Association and employs around 230 people.
Saarbrücken, the capital of the Federal State of Saarland, is an attractive and engaging university town in the southwest of Germany on the border with France. Saarbrücken can be reached by train from Frankfurt in about two hours.
