Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung GmbH
Novel alloys for automotive lightweight design and airplane turbines, materials for sustainable energy conversion and storage, and the development of big data and machine learning methods – these are just a few examples of the research areas that are being investigated by the scientists of the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung. The team of engineers, material scientists, physicists, and chemists develops tailored materials and methods for mobility, energy, infrastructure, and information. To this end, the researchers study complex materials with atomic precision under real environmental conditions. The structure of the institute itself is unique for the Max Planck Society, since the Steel Institute VDEh acts as a second shareholder. This co-funding paves the way for application-oriented basic research on the cutting-edge.
