The CicurlarLIB research training group is composed of institutes from three local universities and the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST.
Please find their individual descriptions below.
With 18,500 students and 3,700 staff members, Technische Universität Braunschweig is the largest Institute of Technology in Northern Germany. It stands for a strategic and achievement-oriented way of thinking and acting, relevant research, exceptional teaching and the successful transfer of knowledge and technologies to industry and society. We focus our research on mobility, infections and therapeutics, metrology, and the city of the future. Our core disciplines include a comprehensive engineering branch and a strong natural sciences branch, closely linked with business sciences, social sciences, humanities and educational sciences.
Clausthal University of Technology is a research-focused university with outstanding national and international networking shaped by its location in the diverse landscape of the Harz mountains in the middle of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, science works closely with business and industry, bridging the gap between basic research and application in a strategic focus on the Circular Economy and a contribution to the development of a sustainable industrial society in the digital age. The close link between material and process knowledge as well as expertise in digitization facilitate a significant contribution to the implementation of the Circular Economy.
Shaping the Future with Knowledge – as one of the nine leading Institutes of Technology in Germany, Leibniz University is aware of its responsibility in seeking sustainable, peaceful and responsible solutions to the key issues of tomorrow. Our expertise for this stems from the broad spectrum of subjects, ranging from engineering and natural sciences to architecture and environmental planning, from law and economics to social sciences and humanities.
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is the world’s leading applied research organization. The Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST in Braunschweig, Germany, develops innovative product and production systems based on its portfolio of technologies and competencies in the fields of coating and surface engineering as well as process and manufacturing technologies. The aim is to create tailor-made and sustainable solutions – from prototypes up to industrial production scenarios.
