The Entrepreneurship Hub supports students, alumni and research assistants of Ostfalia University, TU Braunschweig and HBK Braunschweig who want to start their own business. The goal is to provide people with a business start-up as a rewarding and fulfilling career option and to create a lively start-up culture in the region.
Active principles of nanoscale matrix additives for lightweight fibre composite construction
In the context of lightweight construction, fibre-reinforced polymers such as CFK and GFK offer an extremely attractive alternative to light metals, especially due to their macroscopic mechanical properties. For this reason, there is a great effort to further improve the mechanical properties of corresponding fibre composites. This is possible with the help of nanotechnology.
The Research Centers represent a unique concentration and cooperation of individual, subject-related institutes and external research partners. Here you can find an overview of the research centres with the participation of the institutes of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.
Battery Lab Factory Braunschweig (BLB)
One field of research at Technische Universität Braunschweig is the production technology of traction batteries. The goal of the laboratory is the scientific investigation of the entire production chain from the production of the electrodes, the cell, the module to the system integration.
Will it be possible to produce drugs more cheaply in the future? Will there be drugs that are tailored to the individual patient, tailored to his or her needs, particularly effective and well tolerated – and still affordable? Researchers at Braunschweig Technical University want to make this possible on the basis of new technologies. In the new research building for pharmaceutical process engineering, which was opened in 2018, experts from the fields of pharmacy, process engineering and microtechnology will work together on a long-term basis in this model, which is unique in Germany.
Research at the limits of the measurable: In the Laboratory of Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), research groups will work together on important questions of measurement in the nanoworld using state-of-the-art technical infrastructure and expertise from electrical engineering, physics, mechanical engineering and chemistry. Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is involved in LENA as a strategic partner.
The LeichtbauCampus is regarded in Germany as one of the leading addresses for the research and development of hybrid components of the future. In a novel cooperation model, it enables research and development of new and innovative lightweight construction concepts for future vehicle generations.
With the Metrology Initiative Braunschweig, TU Braunschweig and Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt are further expanding their long-standing cooperation in the field of metrology. The spectrum ranges from joint research projects and centres to jointly operated courses of study (Master's programme Metrology and Analytics) and graduate schools as well as the appointment of management staff with joint links to both institutions.
