University of Bremen (UBREMEN)
University of Bremen was founded in 1971 with 23,000 people including students, professors, researchers, and employees. The exceptional quality of research in University of Bremen is through its close collaboration with numerous independent research institutes, both on campus and around the region. Their competence and vitality have attracted more than four hundred research and business ventures to the technology park around campus, creating a nationally recognized hub of high technology.
1) Leibniz Institute for Materials Engineering IWT
Research topics include reactive and non-reactive spraying and deposition processes (FSP, spray forming, powder production, and spray cooling), simulation and optimization of multiphase phenomena, and process and particle characterization using electromagnetic waves. Research activities include reactive spraying, multiphase flow and mass and energy transfer, particle characterization (XRD, TEM, BET), chemical sensors and catalysis, and cellular toxicity evaluation of engineered nanoparticles (eNP) in collaboration with UC CEIN and CNPT at UCLA (USA).
2) Department of Technology Design and Development
The Department of Technology Design and Development headed by Prof.Dr.Arnim von Gleich focuses on the sustainable design of industrial systems. It has extensive experience and knowledge in the fields of innovation and technology analysis, risk assessment, ecological evaluation methods, technology genesis and model-oriented technology design. Especially for the prospective evaluation of emerging research directions and technology lines, the department has further developed the methodology of prospective innovation and technology analysis. In projects on the substitution of hazardous substances, nanotechnology, bionics, and synthetic biology, design options for influencing these technology areas in terms of sustainable development were developed.
