Description

The Bielefeld Institute for Applied Materials Research (BIfAM) was founded in 2013 as one of the first research institutes of the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences. The expertise of the participating scientists comprises physics, chemistry, biology, biotechnology, informatics, mechanical engineering, process engineering, and electrical engineering. Research interests cover aspects of measurement technology, functional layers, energy transfer, sensor technology, material analytics, destructive and non-destructive materials testing, field emission scanning electron microscopy, additive manufacturing, formulations, and computer based modelling and simulation.

The scientific-technical work within BIfAM comprises both research and development in order to face the great societal challenges with innovative approaches – from fundamental research on novel materials, via material and technology development towards product and process development. Interdisciplinary research teams develop creative solutions in the hot topic areas mobility, medical engineering, energy and resource efficiency, digitization, bio economy, and sustainability.
