The research work of CiS includes on the one hand contract research for industry, especially for SMBs. As such, we see ourselves as a link between SMBs and universities with the aim of translating the findings of basic research in the field of micro/nano-engineering via industrial research and experimental development into marketable products and services. Scientific findings are made available without discrimination.

Secondly, the institute completes applied and pre-market research assignments on behalf of the authorities. In this, the institute focuses on both the main issues of European research programmes as well as federal and state government research projects. When it comes to research associations and projects, we are associated with several selected top research projects in Germany.
