Leibniz-IWT stands for research in the field of new materials, new processes and optimised components. Our work is interdisciplinary, international and practical. The scientific questions in our institute range from the production of materials, such as powder production for additive manufacturing, to the analysis of the final machined components, for example high-precision gears. This is how we shape the requirements of tomorrow.

We know that we can only follow this path together, which is why we would be delighted if you would become part of this journey. We are always looking for cooperation partners from research and industry as well as motivated employees.
